Evaluation of Dr Sayyed’s presentation, “Is the Bible God’s Word?” (Part 4) by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

(5minute read). In the last few weeks, I have tried to show that Dr. Sayyed's objections to the authenticity of the Bible is not sincere and lacks any objectivity. Dr. Sayyed is merely trying to embarrass and twist the Biblical stories to fit his motives.

Evaluation of Dr Sayyed’s presentation, “Is the Bible God’s Word?” (Part 3) by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

In this article, I will give feedback on his presentation. I will mirror Dr Sayyed’s claims and apply the same to the central context of the [...]

Jesus, God, and the Qur’an, on the Christian Scriptures by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

5 Minute read: In my recent discussion with Dr. Sayyed on the question, ‘Is the Bible God’s Word’ my central claim was that ultimately we can only answer that question once we have endeavored to look at the claims of Jesus as a true Prophet. My very central claim against Dr. Sayyed’s presentation, in fact, was threefold and I will briefly outline my argument in this article. First, we need to ask the question concerning [...]
