Due to a number of reasons judicature in the Reformed Churches of South Africa (GKSA) has developed into a system which has been formed not so much by scriptural norms as by other factors. Among these factors where the influence of democracy, inadequate distinction between church government and church judicature, a dichotomy between the acceptance of norms for church judicature and so-called secular judicature, insufficient attention to biblical norms and the development of a tradition among scholars of church law. Experience in plenary meetings of the church has indicated that church judicature should be put on a sounder scriptural foundation.
