    Demographic Change: Ecological and Polycentric Challenges for White Christianity in Urban South Africa.Kelebogile T. Resane - 2019 - HTS Theological Studies 75 (1).
    This article demonstrates how white Christianity in urban South Africa is fated by demographic change. The repeal of apartheid in 1994 enacted some sociocultural changes in urban South Africa. The white population exited the city and town centres, followed by the black South Africans. The historical relationship of the government under the National Party and the Dutch Reformed Church led to latters’ redundancy in the cities. The cultural development towards multiculturalism led to polycentric focus where the suburban peripheries and the (...)

    Statues, Symbols and Signages: Monuments Towards Socio-Political Divisions, Dominance and Patriotism?Kelebogile T. Resane - 2018 - Hts Theological Studies 74 (4):1-8.
    The focus of this article is on monuments variously referred to as statues, symbols, signages, busts, icons etc. The words are used interchangeably. Three words are highlighted to represent a common concept. These are statues, symbols and signages. The South African history with its painful experience of the indigenous inhabitants is highlighted and how symbols had to change in 1994 to represent the aspirations of the new democratic dispensation. Biblical reflections on monuments demonstrate the importance of these symbols during the (...)

    Black Consciousness, Black Nationalism and Black Theology: Is There a Possibility for Theology of Dialogue?Kelebogile T. Resane - 2021 - HTS Theological Studies 77 (3).
  4. Pentecostal Theology’s Problem (Pt 1 2:2): Maši Ke Phepa Ke le Nosi, Selabe Se Tla le Motsaya Kgamelo – a Setswana Proverb. [REVIEW]Kelebogile T. Resane - 2022 - HTS Theological Studies 78 (4):1-8.
    Decolonisation of theology can be undertaken by engaging African proverbs and idioms. Pentecostalism, although the African Christian phenomenon is exploding, also needs to be decolonised in order to break itself of the western shackles of stereotyping Christianity as a western civilisation. The historical development of Pentecostalism, highlighting the heresies that invaded it, is examined, expanded and explained to support the notion that, indeed, the Setswana proverb: Maši ke phepa ke le nosi, selabe se tla le motsaya kgamelo, is a powerful (...)

  5. Theology and Botho/Ubuntu in Dialogue Towards South African Social Cohesion.Kelebogile T. Resane - 2022 - HTS Theological Studies 78 (4):1-7.
    South Africa is one of the most unequal societies in the world. This article is a literature study on the role of theology and the African philosophy of botho or ubuntu trying to address this social inequality. It is this situation that has led to poor cohesion in society. It shows how theology through its constructive nature has for years shifted from dogmatism to interdisciplinary dialogue with other sciences and philosophies in order to arrive at facts that are helpful to (...)

    Theological Dialogue Towards Ethical Restoration in a Homophobia-Riddled Society.Kelebogile T. Resane - 2020 - Hts Theological Studies 76 (4).
    Homosexuality and homophobia in South Africa exist side by side. Homophobia is very common in communities and churches. Biblical texts, traditional cultures and politics partner to dismiss, discredit or disqualify homosexuality, but historians and anthropologists have evidence that homosexuality has been around within African cultures for many ages. Christians are divided into two camps. There are those who openly oppose gay rights with citations from biblical texts, claiming that homosexuality is forbidden by God. Others claim that this is poor biblical (...)

    Servant Leadership and Shepherd Leadership: The Missing Dynamic in Pastoral Integrity in South Africa Today.Kelebogile T. Resane - 2020 - Hts Theological Studies 76 (1):1-8.
    This article aims to give a full definition of servant leadership and shepherd leadership by comparing and contrasting the two texts of Jeremiah 23 and John 10. The notion of 'shepherd' or 'shepherding' is analysed and brought into the current debate on servant leadership. The shepherd metaphor used in the two passages is contextualised to the South African pastoral leadership situation, especially with regard to pastoral integrity. The status of pastoral leadership in the South African church community is highlighted as (...)

    Commercialisation, technology, and globalisation impact all facets of religion.Commercialisation of religion contributes towards society’s obsession with success.
