Is Jesus truly Almighty God By Joy A. Veinot

(Originally printed in the Fall 2003 Issue of the MCOI Journal) Should you believe in the Trinity?

WTBTS, Should You Believe in the Trinity? (Brooklyn, New York: WATCHTOWER BIBLE AND TRACT SOCIETY OF NEW YORK, INC., 1989)] Well, should we [...]

Christ In Me International [Christ in me Collective]: Emergence of a New Cult? by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

In about 48 to 50 AD, Paul of Tarsus wrote to the Galatian Church being befuddled about their willingness to accept a different Gospel. He wrote (1:6-8) “I am amazed that you are so quickly turning away from Him who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another gospel, but there are some who are troubling you and want to change the good news [...]

The theology of “Christ in Me International” [Christ in Me Collective] evaluated by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

In this article, I will analyse the central teaching of "Christ in Me International" as outlined by Mathys Kotzé (tutor at C.I.M.I). His explanation appeared in the comments section of the “Nuwe Wyn” blog of Dr. Christo Nel on October 16, 2016.[1] From here on, I will refer to Christ in Me International as CIMI and throughout the article look at two central themes: First their Christology (their view on the work and person of [...]

Mormon attempts at logical refutation of my deductive arguments by Vladimir Susic

Recently I wrote a deductive argument for Jonathan McLatchie's webinar, the Apologetics Academy which hosted a Mormon, Jaxon Washburn on the topic "Why I am a Mormon". During the Q&A I engaged Jaxon and put forth the deductive argument, which he could not give an answer to, and so he sent the argument to Robert Boylan, who mustered up some sort of a laughable response (1). In this article I will only address the first [...]

Folklore in Church: Amulets, contact objects and other common myths by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

Many rampant unbiblical theologies have been prevalent in the South African Church scene these last few years. There seems to be an overall idea that one manifestation should outdo the other. There is a focus on miracles and Christian character is seemingly compromised by flattering titles such as 'Bishop', 'Prophet' and 'Daddy'. Unfortunately, some of these teachings, even though extreme, are nothing new. One of these prevailing teachings seems to be the 'contact object teaching'. [...]

Kenmerke van ‘n kulte deur Dr. HG Stoker (enkele bywerkings deur Dr. HF van Wyk).

Wanneer mens met verskillende lede van dieselfde kulte-groep (byvoorbeeld Jehovah-getuies) gesels, kom mens gou agter dat hulle baie dieselfde reageer en antwoord op dinge wat aan hul gestel word - so asof hul almal dieselfde afgerig is. Wanneer hulle daarna gevra word, Antwoord hulle trots dat dit wêreldwyd so is. Hulle is nie onderling verdeel soos die Christelike kerke nie, maar hulle is 'n eenheid. Soos 'n Jehovah-getuie jou in Suid-Afrika antwoord, so sal een [...]

Merchandising the Anointing by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

(Average read: 3 Minutes). It was our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that made a profound statement in Luke 12:14 when he said: “Be on your guard against all kinds of greed”. Recently a well-known preacher announced that God told Him to claim a new Learjet that he desired. Upon criticism and a hostile backlash from secular media, he calmly asserted that it is God's will for him to be blessed and expect more. In [...]
