What makes God, God? by Rudolph P. Boshoff

In a Doxology expressed by Paul (Romans 11:33-36), he writes; "O, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and unfathomable are His ways! "For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?" "Or who has first given to Him, and it shall be repaid to him?" For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him [...]

Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God? by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

In the last few years, there have been quite a few attempts made to answer this question. Broadly speaking, there are four views regarding this question. All Worship the same God (The Religious Pluralist View). All Worship the same God (The Same God View). Jews and Christians Worship the same God (The Shared revelation View). None Worship the same God (Different conceptions View). For the sake of time, let’s look at the second and fourth [...]

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 Modal Ontological Argument: Understanding and Defense by Vladimir Šušić

We as Christians have several very convincing arguments for the existence of God. Arguments such as the Kalam Cosmological Argument, the Argument from Design, Argument from the Resurrection of Christ and others are often the forefront of any debate with our atheist friends. One often highly overlooked and rarely used argument is the Modal Ontological Argument. The reason why the Modal Ontological Argument (from now referred to as the MOA) is rarely used is not [...]

Contemplating the Christian God: Being and Person by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

John Calvin writes, “God is not imaginable. All images we invent are idols of the mind, products of our own imagination, for God ever remains like Himself and is not a spectre or phantasm to be transformed according to our desires. It is a fact, however, that the mind of fallen man remains a perpetual factory of idols and false imaginations of God, so that He is always projecting his own inventions of figments upon [...]

The Qur’an and the Trinity – Three Gods: Jesus, Mary and Allah by John Gilchrist

How the Church became Aware that God is Triune The Messiah Jesus, the Son of Mary, was a messenger of Allah and his Word, which he breathed into Mary, and a Spirit from him.

Surah 4:171 It was less than four centuries ago that the world first began to accept that the [...]

Boundaries in our discussion surrounding Functional Subordination by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

The Westminster Confession of Faith reads: "In the unity of the Godhead, there be three Persons, of one substance, power, and eternity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost: the Father is of none, neither begotten, not proceeding; the Son is eternally begotten of the Father; the Holy Ghost eternally proceeding from the Father and the Son." (WCF II.3) In recent discussions surrounding the interpretation of the Biblical text and more [...]

Ode to the unknown God: Reflection on the Allah of Islam by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

It was Theologian A.W. Tozer, in his book "The Knowledge of the Holy" that stated “What comes to into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. The history of mankind will probably show that no people has ever risen above its religion, a man’s spiritual history will positively demonstrate that no religion has ever been greater than its idea of God. Worship is pure or base as the [...]

A Vindication of Divine Paradox by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

Since the beginning of time, man had a deep-seated restlessness that would express itself in the apparent need to partially comprehend Someone beyond themselves. In their articulation, words like “otherness” and “beyondness” come to mind when trying to explain ideas about God. Biblically, there is no doubt that God is wholly beyond us, and equally other than us. Numerous individual souls prolong their search through giving no attention to their inherent desire or simply because [...]
