Abstract

This article reports the results of three empirical surveys on the reaction to modernity of white Dutch Reformed Church members of the higher socio-economic group in the eastern suburbs of Pretoria over the past twenty years. It deals with secularisation, especially rationalisation on the individual level, and has to do with a change of belief in God in the sense that there is some evidence of a fading away of a transcendent view of God. Whereas C J Alant found in the sixties that 90 per cent of this group still professed a manifest supernaturalism as far as the person of God was concerned, I spotted a tendency towards an innerworldly view of God among a specific group of modal members of the white Dutch Reformed Church in the eastern suburbs of Pretoria.
