A Short synopsis on the Nature of God by Norman L. Geisler and Ryan P. Snuffer

"God" is a general term that takes on many meanings in many different cultural contexts. Various pantheistic religions, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and New Age cults, define "god" as an impersonal force that is in some way equated to an eternal universe. The idea of a pantheistic God is in direct conflict with the idea of a theistic God. The monotheistic religions of the world (Christianity, Judaism, Islam) view God as personal and separate from [...]

The Divine Dance: Unpacking the Divine Encounters in Human Experience by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

In Biblical theology, the doctrine of accommodation refers to the idea that God, when revealing divine truths to humanity, adapts or accommodates the message in a way that is understandable and relatable to human beings. When we look at the reception of any revelation from God, we understand that God reveals, preserves, and relates it as He wills. We clearly recognize the inherent limitations of human comprehension and reception of God’s revelation, but we always [...]

The Trinity in light of Scripture and reason by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

In this blog, I want to touch on some of the points that I made in a recent debate that I participated in with the well-known debater Dr. Shabir Ally and my good friend Yusuf Ismail. In all honesty, I believe that as Christians, we should be able to defend the merits of the Doctrine of the Trinity with a fair amount of ease. When I was attempting to describe a setting in the first [...]

What makes God, God? by Pastor 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 Dark Side of Persuasion: Unraveling the Secrets of Manipulation 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.
