Calling out ‘God’s anointed’ by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(5 Minute Read). “Why can’t we all just get along?” Jack Nicholson asks the queen of the Martian Aliens after their hostile takeover of the earth in the 1996 cult classic, 'Mars Attacks'.[1] There seems to be an ever-increasing culture of offense growing in Churches where we are cautioned not to point fingers in the direction of any believer or leader. "Shame on you," or "touch not God's anointed," have become the normative response hurled [...]

The Coming Out of a False Prophet by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(5-Minute read).  History Leon Du Preez is a young man in Gauteng, South Africa that claims that he was called at a very young age to the Prophetic ministry via the Physical appearance and call of God Himself. On his Prophetic Institute Website, he describes the fact that; “He has been both recognized and fathered by the genesis and pioneer of the modern-day prophetic movement – Prophet Uebert Angel, who is known as a Prophet [...]

Should Christians have out of body experiences? by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(5-minute read): There is an alarming trend amongst some influential televangelist and modern prophets. They relate subtle out of body experiences and visions relating to the same realities mentioned by the Old Testament patriarchs and New Testament Saints (Isa.6, 2 Cor.5:8). Recently, Prophet Leon Du Preez announced that he could leave his body and move into other household areas. These are but a small example of how these teachers promote vicarious practices described in the [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Positive Confession and the Biblical Christian (Part 2 of 2) by Pastor Rudolph P. 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 P. 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 Pastor 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 [...]

The ‘One GOD’ of Christ in Me International [ Christ in me Collective] (Part 4) by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

Source: (Average read: 5 Minutes). This is the fourth, instalment where I set out to show the simple inconsistencies and the poor reflection on the Scriptures from “Christ In Me International” (Pretoria, SA). From here on, I will refer to ‘Christ in Me International’ in abbreviated terms as ‘CIMI’. The availability of their article is found at the following link: ‘One God’. Let us look at their perspective and reply to it systematically. CIMI [...]
