Chapter Summary

Religious indifference is a sociological phenomenon that dominantly reveals several options and the plurality of beliefs and opinions are built around the notion of uniqueness. A general description of the Hungarian context displays the different socio-politically and economically motivated characteristics of the world, such as globalization, secularization, and plurality. During the four decades of Communism, a terrible process can be detected in the society of the Hungarian population. When the political changes opened new possibilities, these new situations became fertile grounds for inequality under the slogan of democracy and private ownership. It is clear that the Hungarian Reformed Church found itself in a complex and difficult situation after the changes: instability, the lack of self-identity and the missing concepts of the present and future. Christian identity and the identity of the church have to be seen as transcendental and which is rooted in Christ.
