oa Discourse - A theology for the recession

 

Abstract

The recession is knocking at everyone's door. The theology of the past, based on sin-soul-salvation, does not work any more. We cannot control the recession with our souls only, and a confession of our financial sins alone will not make the recession disappear either. What we need for our salvation here is a theology based on new, empowering values, three of which are discussed here : accountability, human dignity and compassionate justice.

Die resessie klop aan ons almal se deur. Die teologie van die verlede wat op sonde-siel-saligheid gebaseer was, werk nie meer nie. Ons kan die resessie nie net met ons siele beheer nie, en 'n belydenis van ons finansiële sondes alleen sal die resessie nie laat weggaan nie. Wat ons nodig het vir ons saligheid hier, is 'n teologie wat gegrond is op nuwe, bemagtigende waardes. Hier word drie van hulle bespreek, naamlik verantwoording ("accountability"), menswaardigheid ("human dignity") en saamvoel-geregtigheid ("compassionate justice").
