(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 [...]

Positive Confession and the Biblical Christian (Part 2 of 2) by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

(15-Minute Read) In my previous article, I wrote a basic outline for the doctrine of the Positive Confession Movement evident within the Charismatic Pentecostal Community as well as the Metaphysical Cults. In the second part, I will attempt to ask sober questions concerning the six-point that I mentioned. The Word “faith” has taken a very different meaning from a context 50 years ago; therefore, it is crucial to start with a biblical understanding of what [...]

Positive Confession and the Biblical Christian (Part 1 of 2) by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

(10-Minute read). When I became a Christian a few years back, someone alerted me to some books of some popular authors that proclaimed the very pragmatic doctrine called Rhematology. The Theology of the Spoken Word, or thought actualization, is commonly known as positive confession. It stresses the inherent power of words and thoughts and holds that every person predestines his future by what he says verbally and by how well he uses spiritual laws of [...]

How to start your own Cult by Rudolph P. Boshoff

(10-Minute read) In this article, we will not look at the types of cults but rather start with the essential elements that typify a cult. Have you ever wondered how cults began, or why people seem to gravitate towards these isolated groups? Cults could be an isolated group or community that is closed to the general public but open to conformists ready to join their movement. Cults could also be an ambitious group that strives to [...]

Animism and the prosperity Gospel in an African context by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.  

Christianity in Africa is growing at an exciting pace. In April 2017, David McClendon from the Pew Research Center wrote; “Christianity’s future lies in Africa. By 2060, a plurality of Christians – more than four-in-ten – will call sub-Saharan Africa home.”[1] McClendon mentions that the sole reason for this growth is because of “demographic factors, including fertility, age and migration, as well as religious switching into and out of Christianity. In sub-Saharan Africa, Christians, on [...]

The ‘One GOD’ of Christ in Me International (Part 1) [Christ in me Collective] by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

(Average read: 5 Minutes). I am appreciative of ‘Christ in Me International’s attempt to explain their perspective on the roots and definition of the Doctrine of the Trinity and Jesus Christ. In this article, I will look at the context of the Scriptures they mention as well as the validity of their own teachings surrounding these portions and clarify the orthodox (original) historical understanding of what these Scriptures teach in the Biblical context (exegesis[1]).

Is Christ in Me International a Cult? – A Response by Don and Joy Veinot

Christ in Me International (CiMI) is a New Religious Movement developing in South Africa. We were alerted to its existence when we began receiving emails and requests for information: Is this a group that falls within the historic Christian faith but engages in some odd practices, or does the New Religious Movement fall outside the pale of orthodoxy? We have done two web casts on this subject with a concerned pastor from that area, Rudolph Boshoff [...]
