Biblical Contentment and the Prosperity Gospel by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(3-minute read) Pentecostal Scholar, Gordon Fee, cautions us about two extreme viewpoints regarding wealth: first, a rejection, and second, an excessive accommodation of it. In some Churches, the false promise is made that God will bless you if you proportion an exuberant amount to the central man of God. God's grace for salvation seems to be free, but his supposed economy is not. The sad reality is that the "man of God" appears to become the catalyst for [...]

The Psychology of the Super-Natural by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(10-minute read).  It was almost 9 pm on a Friday night when Candice and I listened to the young and dynamic Prophet pointing to the TV Screen claiming, “God wants you well”; “God wants you prosperous”; “God wants you healed”. Somehow all of these seem to make you quite comfortable, especially in a year of global panic after the Covid 19 infestation. It seems like everybody is in some need of assurance, and like many [...]

The Prophet that divided the World by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(15-minute read) Muhammad was born around April 20, 570 A.D, in an Arabian city called Mecca or April 26, according to Shi'ites. His father Abdullah died before he was born, and his mother, Amina, died when he was six years old. After the death of his grandfather Abd al-Muttalib, Muhammad was raised by his uncle Abu Talib, leader of the Banu Hashim clan. We may divide Muhammad's life into three main periods. Pre-Prophetic Period (570-610 [...]

Were the authors of the Canonical Gospels Illiterate? by Bobby Freddy

Yes, says Attorney Yusuf Ismail of the Islamic Propagation Centre International (IPCI Durban South Africa) On Saturday night (20th Oct 2018) in a dialogue, Attorney Yusuf Ismail asked: *How Can One Prove and Say The Gospel Is From Authentic Eye Witnesses when Jesus's Disciples, who were Mere Unschooled Fishermen; Could Suddenly Communicate In Authentic Oral and Written Greek?* (Attorney Yusuf Ismail – IPCI) Despite responding to him in Oct 2018 he repeats this argument again [...]

Pre-Islamic Arabia and the practices of Islam by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(10 minute-read) Pre-Islamic Arabia or the Jahiliyyah (before 610 AD). The Socio-Economic Context Contrary to belief, pre-Islamic Arabia and the early desert Bedouins were not isolated from the rest of the world, being stoop in ignorance. Still, they had contact with ancient and contemporary civilizations, including Greece, Rome, Byzantium, and Persia. Even before Islam's rise, Mecca owed its existence to both trade and pilgrimage, writes M.J. Kister. Bernard Lewis, in his excellent book "The Arabs [...]

What should I think about modern day Prophets? by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(5-Minute read).  Due to cultural identities and animistic believes prevailing in an Africa context, there seems to be an influx of Prophets and teachers that display all kinds of weird miracles and predictions. The qualification necessary to become an authoritative speaker appears to be Prophetic expressions to convince and convert a following that can contribute to the man of God. We hear a lot about alignment, and the man of God is the means to [...]

Were the New Testament authors Liars? Answering Dr Shuaib Sayyed by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(10-Minute read).  I have looked at Dr. Shuaib Sayyed's presentation “Is the Bible God’s Word?” in four parts here: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 It is important to state the objection of Dr. Sayyed: All these authors lied because there is no direct reference to the actual words they are saying. In a WhatsApp message Dr. Sayyed mentions: “Take another example John 20:9 'For as yet they knew not the Scriptures, that he [...]

What every Christian needs to know about the Hadith and the Sunnah by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(5-Minute read).  Traditionally, the word Hadīth’ (Arabic: حديث‎ ʾhādīṯ or plural ahādīth أحاديث) [1] means ‘communication’ or ‘narrative’ and in an Islamic setting, it would pertain to the stories about the life of Prophet Muhammad and his companions. Shaik Kadir in his helpful book, ‘Islam Explained’, writes; “Apart from the Qur’an, there is another book that Muslims rely on for guidance — the Hadith, which contains the words and deeds of the Prophet. The Islamic [...]

Before you go to the Prophet by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(15-minute read) What is happening in our Churches? It seems like the Gospel is only a preliminary to where the real action is. Philip Jenkins states that if history can tell us anything, any pandemic always allows for the opportunity for snake oil salesmen and charlatans to capitalize on the sentiment of religious people.[1] You and I should be concerned with the current influx of spirituality and revivalism infiltrating the South African Church. Online [...]

Varied Christian perspectives on evil and suffering by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(15-Minute Read) For a while now, I had the idea to share a short article reflecting on some possible theological views concerning pain and suffering. In this article, I examine some renowned Christians' viewpoints that influenced how we can account for the presence of evil and suffering in the world. A Christian Theistic understanding does not exclude God's presence because of the reality of evil, like atheism. This article does not attempt to distinguish between the [...]
