DREYER, T F J. Die kerk, die huwelik en seks: 'n morele krisis?. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2008, vol.64, n.1, pp.483-496. ISSN 2072-8050.
The church, marriage and sex - a moral crisis? Within Western societies the church is challenged by a new sexual "morality". Seemingly, the traditional theological answers do not address the challenge sufficiently. The incompetence of the church to change people's minds leads to a moral crisis. This article is an attempt to create awareness that the church has no choice but to review her traditional stance. This awareness will only surface once we are prepared to acknowledge that our traditional views were influenced by different contexts through the ages. Therefore it is necessary, in a postmodern context, to theologically reflect afresh within this context.
