The refutation of apartheid theology only met with limited success. Although the Dutch Reformed Church rejected this kind of theology in 1986, the former apartheid churches are still delaying unification. The author suggests that this might be due to the dominant theological paradigm which favours an impoverished soteriology and a natural theology. A new understanding of the Trinity as source for social unity and diversity allows for a more fundamental criticism of apartheid theology, but even more importantly, it prepares the church for its prophetic task to protect our young democracy against oppression and the misuse of power. For a new understanding of the Trinity the author considers the contribution of the German theologian, Jürgen Moltmann.
