Visi Profetis Kehidupan Sosial Umat Kristen dalam Demokrasi Menurut John W. De Gruchy

Aseng Yulias Samongilailai

Abstract


This article reviews how church members - Christians - should play a role in social life, especially in the context of Indonesia's democratic life. The role of church members is derived from a theoretical study of John W. De Gruchy's thoughts on the prophetic vision which also functions as the basis for this role. The prophetic vision on which the role is based covers the importance of upholding justice, presenting the love of Jesus and the kingdom of God, and of how the Christian community should become an ecclesiā that has a positive, constructive impact on social situations that are experiencing degradation in various lines of life.
