Abstract

Modern culture has been defined as a culture of change. In South Africa the present process of change across the broad spectrum of modern life is evident. This reality poses new challenges for Reformed preaching. In this article the major aspects of the new challenges are analysed from a futurological and sociological point of view. Attention is paid to changes in moral standards, secularization, the emancipation of Christian faith in the post-apartheid era, the loss in function and authority of the Church and the decline in ecclesiastical commitment of Christians. The severe influence of the cybernetic revolution and future shock is also discussed with reference to their effect on Christian faith and Reformed preaching.
