Church Reformers we should not forget:
On the fifth of November 1980, the Reformed Day Witness was published in
Die Kerkbode by eight theologians of the Dutch Reformed Church. The
Witness, as it became known, soon had storm clouds gathering in the
church, because of it's content. It was a wakeup call to the church about
it's prophetic call, it's guidance to government and it's role in
reconciliation. Many ministers and members of the church supported The
Witness while church leadership was mainly against it. In the end The
Witness was silenced but the seed were sown. Many ministers and church
members now knew that the Dutch Reformed Church had to take a new
approach with regard to it's prophetic call and it's role in society. When
we look back over what happened in the past seventeen years, history tells
us that these men were prophets of their time, men that we must not forget.
