(2 Minute Read) THE JEWISH SHEMA & MUSLIM SHAHADA: 1. TORAH: LAW OF MOSES & THE SHEMA “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” (Deuteronomy 6:4-5) The primary teaching is contained in Deuteronomy 6:4.

Functional Polytheism: A response to Dale Tuggy by Vladimir Šušić

Recently I wrote and article titled: “Biblical” Unitarianism’s Functional Polytheism”, which I posted to Dr. Tuggy’s discussion group, trinities, on Facebook. It gathered a wide variety of responses, most of which did not even attempt to engage with the article at hand, which is to be partly expected given the nature of the group we are dealing with. Regardless, Dr. Tuggy decided to address my article in a blog post on trinities.org. [1] He thus [...]

“Biblical” Unitarianism’s Functional Polytheism by Vladimir Šušić

4 Minute read: Biblical Unitarianism can be broadly defined as belief in a Unitarian, Biblical God, who is a singular person, The Father, who is alone eternal. By its proponents, the belief is championed as bastion of Biblical Monotheism, in the light of “Polytheistic” Trinitarian beliefs of the Church. This article will seek to demonstrate that the doctrine of Biblical Unitarianism as held by its proponents, at the very least constitutes Functional Dyotheism (Polytheism). Ontological Dyotheism can [...]

The Trinity in the first three centuries of Church History by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

(15-minute read). Introduction: Prince of Preachers, Charles. H. Spurgeon said: "the proper study of God's elect is God; the proper study of a Christian is the Godhead. The highest science, the loftiest speculation, the mightiest philosophy, which can ever engage the attention of a child of God, is the name, the nature, the person, the work, the doings, and the existence of the great God whom he calls his Father. There is something exceedingly improving [...]

The ‘One GOD’ of Christ in Me International (Part 1) [Christ in me Collective] by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

(Average read: 5 Minutes). I am appreciative of ‘Christ in Me International’s attempt to explain their perspective on the roots and definition of the Doctrine of the Trinity and Jesus Christ. In this article, I will look at the context of the Scriptures they mention as well as the validity of their own teachings surrounding these portions and clarify the orthodox (original) historical understanding of what these Scriptures teach in the Biblical context (exegesis[1]). From [...]

Is Jesus truly Almighty God By Joy A. Veinot

(Originally printed in the Fall 2003 Issue of the MCOI Journal) Should you believe in the Trinity? This is the question raised by the widely circulated, 1989 booklet published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (WTBTS)*, appropriately titled Should You Believe in the Trinity?and subtitled Is Jesus Christ the Almighty God?[1. WTBTS, Should You Believe in the Trinity? (Brooklyn, New York: WATCHTOWER BIBLE AND TRACT SOCIETY OF NEW YORK, INC., 1989)] Well, should we [...]

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 Illogical nature of The Doctrine of “Biblical” Unitarianism by Vladimir Šušić

Unitarian Scholars like Dr Dale Tuggy like to make deductive arguments trying to put forth that doctrines of a Multipersonal Deity, such as that of The Trinity would be in some way Illogical because of the Law of identity. While these claims have been thoroughly demolished, leading to blocking of Christian Apologists who do so by the likes of the aforementioned scholar, the goal of today's article is to show that the doctrine of Biblical Unitarianism, namely one of Christadelphianism [...]

Addressing the Unitarian perversion of Colossians 1:16 by Vladimir Susic.

The Unitarian idea that the creation of the Church, rather than that of everything is in view in Colossians 1:16 is utterly inconceivable when the text is properly examined. Unitarians would like us to believe that In Colossians 1 the creation being spoken about is arrangement and constitution of the Church, by Christ's death or by some other means rather than a physical act of Creation by Christ. One of the chief propaganda arms of the Unitarian [...]

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 [...]
