We all need to engage with culture in such a way that compels us to pray instead of despair.

Solomon Izang Ashoms


Uncle Solomon is a trained journalist with a BA degree in Communication and an MBA in Marketing and Communication. I was the editor and founder of Parable Magazine and have covered major events around the world as a sports journalist. I have also worked as a freelance journalist for the BBC and other major networks and have made appearances on international radio and TV channels.

My apologetic side in defending biblical truth has exposed leadership problems in the church, helped many victims and discipled many too. My faith in defending God’s truth against the lies of false prophets saw me serving a prison sentence.

I am based in Johannesburg, South Africa and married to Nomathamsanqa. We have two boys.


Uncle Solomon produces commentary of issues and topics, grounded in facts and biblical truth. Through articles on God, Pastors, Church and Lifestyle, together with videos and podcasts from Solomon’s Temple, we try to bring biblical thinking to issues in and outside the church.


Uncle Solomon serves believers of African origin who are in love with the undiluted truth. They want nothing but the truth. They are critical thinkers. They challenge other conclusions until they believe it’s God’s conclusion. They are led by the Spirit and love to pray and serve others.
