Abstract

The relationship between preaching and confessions in a post-modem society: A 'marriage' or 'free love'?. This article attempts, within the tradition of the Reformation, to investigate the relationship between preaching and the confession of the church. Through the ages, this relationship altered from a spontaneous interaction to a formal, judicial contract. This role prescribed to the confession, of being a formal and dominating instrument with judicial authority, is no longer acceptable in a postmodem society. The study aims to establish the specific nature of the relationship and to seek means to organize it in a way that will accommodate the demands of our time, but in an orderly manner that will also benefit the proclamation of the gospel.
