Dominante teologiese sleutels in die Ned Geref Kerk na 1974

Coetzee Murray, Ernst Conradie


This article [follows upon a] forms a sequel to a previous contribution in which the points of divergence between apartheid theology and the critical voices of Ben Marais and Beyers Naudé within the Dutch Reformed Church were analysed, especially with reference to the different “theological keys” employed up to the publication of Human Relations and the South African scene in the light of Scripture (1974). This contribution offers hypo theses for further research on subsequent developments within the Dutch Reformed Church. Three questions are addressed: 1) What happened to the dominant theological keys employed in apartheid theologyafter 1974? 2) Which theological keys became dominant in the Dutch Reformed Church after 1974 and again after 1994? 3) How can the theological points of divergence within the Dutch Reformed Church be understood after 1974 and especially after 1994? Some concluding comments are offered on the significance of such hypotheses for ecumenical relations, especially within the family of Dutch Reformed churches.
