dc.description.abstract The political and socio-economic circumstances of the last fifty years in South Africa met with a remarkable ethical apathy, especially among Afrikaans-speaking, reformed Christians. The root cause of this is to be found in a pietistic world view, which exerted a strong influence on this group via the Second Reformation in the Netherlands and Methodism in South-Africa. In this study, Christ's universal dominion during the period between Ascension and the second coming is indicated as a corrective for the above. This theme is used as a motif in the development of a basic socio-ethical paradigm within the field of theological ethics. It is indicated that Christ, as Head of all creation, associates Himself most strongly with the church. He is the Head of the church and the church is His body. The church is also indicated as the single most important characteristic of the time between Ascension and the second coming, as well as the center from which Christ reigns over all things. The role of the church regarding the rest of creation, especially the socio-political sphere, is indicated as follows: the church has as its primary function a prophetic ministry, but also exists as representative of and example for the world. It further exists as a universal diaconal community, which has to serve the world in love, thereby demonstrating Christ's loving, serving rule over all things. It is also strongly emphasized that not only individual church members, but especially the institutional church as such, has a direct socio-ethical calling. en
