• AUTHORITY IN THE CHURCH

    2020-08-30

    Recent decades have witnessed a renewed interest in Authority in the Church, especially in the wake of sex abuse by the clergy, financial and other scandals in the Church. One of the theological difficulties in the dealing with Authority in the Church is the concept of hierarchy in the Church, integrally connected to ordination. Are hierarchy and servant leadership compatible? Is the authority in the Church given by God alone, or does the community have any role in it? Are the leaders in the Church accountable to God alone, or to the community as well?

  • DEMOCRACY: CHALLENGES TODAY AND THEOLOGICAL RESPONSES

    2020-05-27

    Democracy can be said to be the “government by the people in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.” As Abraham Lincoln has beautifully articulated, democracy is a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

  • CRISIS IN THE CHURCH: ASIAN CONTEXT AND RESPONSES

    2020-05-12

    The recent crisis in the Church due to sexual abuse by the clergy, according to many, is the biggest crisis in the history of the Church. Some others would say that it should be considered at least as the biggest crisis since Reformation. Although the sexual abuse crisis began as an issue in the Western countries, it is becoming clear that no part of the world is immune to this. Reports, especially in the last few years, indicate that cases of sexual abuse of minors and women by the clergy are on the increase in Asia as well. However, it is doubtful how the Asian Church has acknowledged this as a serious issue affecting it.
