Monolatry or Monotheism? Reflections on the Debate with Kenny Bomer by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

(10-Minute Read) In my recent debate with Muslim author Kenny Bomer, we had the opportunity to discuss and look at his perspectives about the alleged influences and adaptions that were interpolated into the Bible from sources like the Ugaritic texts and other Ancient Near Eastern narratives.  You can view the complete debate here: DEBATE! Was Israel Monolatrous? I am convinced by several scholars like Dr. Larry Hurtado and Dr. Richard Bauckham that Jewish Monotheism was strict. [...]

Analyzing attributes of the Creator (Allah and Yahweh)? by Rudolph P. Boshoff

In this discussion, I will start with two contrasting perspectives looking at the revelation and possession of the attributes of Allah and Yahweh. Time is limited, so I will gloss over some details that can be explained later for the sake of time. It should also be noted that I will use the names of God: “Allah or Yahweh” to distinguish the views from a Muslim and Christian perspective. I will first examine and unpack [...]

Islamic Theology and the difficulty of its presuppositions by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

In this short article, I just want to reflect on the logical conclusions of Islamic Theology as the Quran and its sources endeavour to explain the central character of Allah in the central held beliefs that constitutes the faith of the Ummah (Arabic: أمة‎‎). (1) The Ethical Character of God. It is interesting to note that the Judeo/Christian God of the Bible, Jehovah, leads us to conclude that He is essentially moral and supremely holy [...]

The God of Justin Martyr by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

Recently there seem to be a great interest in the early apologetic fathers of early Christianity and there are plenteous attempts to re-interpret and find what their conception was surrounding their faith. In this article, I will look specifically at the Theology of Justin martyr and show that he was rather complex in his understanding of who God is. A recent Unitarian professor resounds with the following words: '...the one true God for Justin is [...]

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. So believe in Allah and his messengers. And say not ‘Three’! It is better for you to desist. Truly Allah is only One. Surah 4:171 It was less than four centuries ago that the world first began to accept that the [...]

The Temple, The Ka’aba, and The Christ by John Gilchrist.

There are three great monotheistic religions in the world, namely Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Each of these not only recognises the existence of one sovereign God who rules the universe but has sources and roots common to the other two. All three admit that human history began when God created Adam and Eve and continue to agree on the immediate course of this history after the creation. The initial temptation and fall of Adam and [...]

A Critique of “Jesus & the Injeel” by John Fontain by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

John Fontain has written a little booklet scrutinizing various themes making large claims concerning the Bible, Jesus and the Christian understanding of the Gospel. I do not endeavor in this evaluation to look at everything Mr. Fontain mentioned and as far possible tried to keep it short and precise, assessing his claims from a Biblical Christian and Scholarly understanding. About the cover: Just an interesting observation about the cover of this little booklet. The quality [...]

Ruminating on the Divine Trinity by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

(20-minute read) 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 [...]
