GUILT AND CHANGE – THE HEALING POWER OF FORGIVENESS

D J Louw

Abstract


The basic assumption underlying the argument is that the reconstruction of our society would be hampered unless opportunities are created for dealing with the issue of guilt and the basic disposition and attitude of people in our country in a constructive manner.  Inevitably the issue of guilt puts the notion of reconciliation and forgiveness on the agenda of the church.  Without the wrongdoings and injustices of the past having truly been dealt with, forgiveness cannot be expected in our country.
