Jan Botha

Abstract


The Bible is one of the most significant bases for values-persuasion and the shaping of the ethos of the South African population.  This significant influence of the Bible is potentially a serious stumbling block for social transformation and the advancement of a human rights culture in South Africa.  In order to state the aim of this paper, a specific event in the not so distant history of South Africa will be recounted.
