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.

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 [...]

The Love of God in the Qur’an and the Bible by John Gilchrist

The Love of God in the Qur'an and the Bible "You shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, by walking in his ways and by fearing him". Deuteronomy 8:6 Moses spoke these words to the Children of Israel shortly before he died. No one need marvel at them for our Creator naturally has the right to demand that his creatures obey his laws and commandments. It is our bounden duty to keep God's [...]

Jesus, Zoroaster, Buddha, Socrates & Muhammad The Life, Death and Teaching of Jesus Compared with Other Great Religious Figures By: Edwin M. Yamauchi, Ph.D.

 One hears conflicting estimates of Jesus. Christians believe he is incomparable, without a peer, but they are often quite ignorant of the lives of other great spiritual leaders. On the other hand, some people speak of Jesus, Buddha, Socrates and others without acknowledging any differences. Walter Lippmann, for example, remarks, "There is no doubt that in one form or another, Socrates and Buddha, Jesus and St. Paul, Plotinus and Spinoza, taught that the good life [...]
