“Was sollen wir tun?” Theological reflections on aspects of the ethics of Karl Barth
J.H. (Amie) van Wyk
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.4102/hts.v63i4.254
Abstract: The author investigates some aspects of the ethics of the wellknown Swiss theologian Karl Barth. The article focuses on to the coherence between dogmatics and ethics, aspects of theocentricity and christocentricty, followed by an exploration of Barth’s views on (homo-)sexuality and politics. Before concluding, a final question is discussed: did Barth practice what he preached? – that is the question regarding integrity. Although the author may not agree with some facets of Barth’s theology, he has and shows appreciation for many of Barth’s views on ethics.
Die Schwarze Theologie von Allan Boesak – mit besonderem Hinweis auf seine Anthropologie
J.H. (Amie) van Wyk
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.4102/hts.v59i2.660
Abstract: The Black Theology of Allan Boesak – with specific reference to his anthropology Allan Boesak is a well known theologian and political reformer in the South African context. In this article the author scrutinises the political theology of Boesak in general and his anthropology in particular. The last section of the article is devoted to an assessment of Boesak's contribution as developed within the broader context of the theology of liberation. The investigation clarifies the fact that, although Boesak represents a more moderate kind of liberation theology, serious questions could still be raised about some of his insights.
Die uitdaging van die ate sme en antite sme: ’n Teologiese gesprek met Armando Pellencin oor sy boek Ate sme: die saak teen God(1 & 2)
J.H. (Amie) van Wyk
In die Skriflig , 2013, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/ 10.4102/ids.v47i1.536
Abstract: In hierdie artikel beskryf die outeur hoedat hy onverwags in 2007 in ’n debat met die ate s Armando Pellencin betrokke geraak het en hoedat dit uiteindelik gelei het tot die skryf van hierdie artikel oor ate sme. Nadat hy in ’n kort intermezzo ’n oorsig oor die opkoms van ate sme gebied het, lewer die outeur daarna ’n uiteensetting van die standpunte van Pellencin. In die volgende hoofdeel van die artikel argumenteer die outeur dat Pellencin – asook ander ate ste – nie afdoende en bevredigende antwoorde kan gee op die vyf fundamentele lewensvrae nie. Hierdie fundamentele lewensvrae is die volgende: Hoe verwerf ’n mens kennis (waarheid)?; Waar kom alles vandaan?; Waar gaan alles heen?; Wat is die sin van die lewe?; Hoe kan ’n mens tussen goed en kwaad onderskei? Die outeur konkludeer dat ate sme, as geloofskeuse en lewens- en wêreldbeskouing faal vanwe die inherente tekortkomings wat aan die reduksionisiese benadering van naturalisme, rasionalisme, positivisme en sci ntisme verbonde is.
Hermeneia: ’n teologiese gesprek oor hermeneutiese vrae met drie Suid- Afrikaanse teolo
J.H. Van Wyk
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 2010, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v75i1.79
Abstract: Hermeneia: a theological discourse on hermeneutical issues with three South African theologians There is an interdenominational Council among the Afrikaans churches that meets from time to time to discuss topical matters. This article contains a revision of a presentation on hermeneutics given during such a meeting in 2009. In the article some introductory remarks are made on hermeneutics and subsequently the author critically investigates – for the sake of discussion – the hermeneutical models set up by three theologians from three churches. Right through it is apparent what a great role hermeneutics plays in the interpretation of Scripture – and should play. Since it is particularly topical and significant one theme from theology, namely Christology, is subjected to a more thorough investigation. Finally the author proposes some guidelines which in his opinion could contribute to a better understanding of Scripture. The polemic nature of the article has to be understood against the background of the history of its origin.

The responsibility of the state and the calling of the church in the South African context of crime and violence – a theological investigation
J.H. van Wyk
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 2005, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v70i3.275
Abstract: This article investigates not only the complex relation between church and state, but also the general and particular responsibilities of the state towards crime and violence. In this regard attention is also paid to the calling and task of the church. The conclusion arrived at is rather alarming in that the moral situation in South Africa has reached a nadir such that the state and the church – each in its own way – has to broach the challenge with great urgency. On the one hand crime and violence should be brought back to “normal” proportions, while on the other hand, South Africa is in desperate need of a new moral orientation and a new culture of respect for human life and the possessions of others.
Skepping en ewolusie. Konkurrensie of kongruensie?
J.H. van Wyk
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 2004, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v69i2.302
Abstract: Creation and evolution. Competition or congruence? In this article the author investigates the relation between creation and evolution. This issue, however, has to be discussed within the much wider framework of the relation between faith and science, or, more precisely, faith and reason. The author emphasises that a correct view of Scripture, as well as a correct interpretation, especially of Genesis 1-3, is of vital importance. It is also imperative to avoid simplistic answers and to distinguish between the different views in creationism and evolutionism. No final conclusion is reached, and the reader is invited to rethink the following question: would it be responsible to make use of ‘evolution as a working hypothesis’ (not ‘evolutionism as dogma’) within a Christian perspective?
Die mens en God in ons tyd — ‘n Uitdaging!
J.H. van Wyk
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1969, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v37i2.1309
Abstract: Dit is met opset dat die woord mens” in die opskrif hierbo voor die woord God” geplaas is. Die mens met sy tegniese prestasies, verstandelike vermo ns, magsontplooiing op soveel terreine, maar ook met sy nood, hulpbehoewendheid en magteloosheid staan vandag in die brandpunt van die diskussie op velerlei gebiede. Hy het die middelpunt van filosofiese, teologiese, maatskaplike, politieke, sedelike en opvoedkundige besinning geword.
Christelik-nasionaal? Op soek na ’n omvattender en indringender konsepsie
J.H. van Wyk
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 1979, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v44i2.1112
Abstract: Die konsep van Christelik-nasionaal (CN) wortel in die dubbele oortuiging dat ’n nasie erken moet word maar terselfdertyd gekersten moet word. Dit gaan uit van die gedagte dat ’n nasie nie ’n irrelevante en terloopse gegewenheid is nie maar deur God vir ’n bepaalde tyd en situasie gewil is en met ’n bepaalde roeping of opdrag beklee is.
What are the key characteristics of a Christian life? A comparison of the ethics of Calvin to that of Augustine and their relevance today
J.H. van Wyk
In die Skriflig , 2010, DOI: 10.4102/ids.v44i4.179
Abstract: Augustine and Calvin are two of the greatest (western) theologians of all times and it is illuminating and inspiring to investigate what they have to teach as far as Christian life is concerned. Augustine never wrote a work on Christian ethics in the modern sense of the word but from his many writings we can easily deduce what the key characteristics are. He accepted the natural virtues of philosophers (prudence, for- titude, temperance and justice) but subordinated them to the “infused virtues” of faith, hope and love. Special attention was also paid to inter alia happiness, humility and truth. Calvin, on the other hand, although following Augustine in many aspects of theology, rejected the virtue ethics of the Greek philosophers and developed a Christological ethics within the broader context of pneumatology. The key characteristics of a Christian life are self-denial, cross-bearing and meditation on the future life – and of course the correct enjoyment of the present life. Although we appreciate much of what the two church fathers have to say, we live in a totally different world context today, facing challenges of far greater proportions, like economical uncertainty, political instability and an immense ecological crisis. Morality is chal- lenged today as never before in world history. Today we have to rethink the relevance of Christian life not only from an individual personal perspective but also in terms of broader social Christian ethics.
