Die Etiek van die Christelike Sending


  • P. Verster, Prof.


Asking the question whether mission is ethical, one first of all has to establish the essence of ethics and of missions. Different viewpoints on missions are possible, but it is still relevant to relate missions to the conversion of people to Christ. Ethics should be grounded as the essential aspects of love to God and love towards other human beings. Different aspects of missions are then evaluated, namely culture and conversion, contextualisation, the right to one’s own religion, prosilitism, reconciliation and atonement, eternity, and persecution. The conclusion is that the relationship of God in Christ still makes it possible to conclude that missions are ethical.
