n Tydskrif vir Geesteswetenskappe - Die teologiese bestuur van morele intelligensie

Volume 45, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0041-4751


This article argues that dogmatic views of morality have rendered believers unintelligent. Rather, moral intelligence is understanding the power base of moral discourses and their functioning within the power structures of society. The reasons why people are unfree to be moral, that is, why they are powerless to make intelligent and healthy decisions about their lives, are investigated within the power discourses of society. The religious needs of people who are rendered "immoral" by society are investigated, also within society's power discourses on morality. Finally, a morals management programme, which is to be implemented by congregations and supported by a healthy theology, is suggested and explained.
