Chapter Summary

The teaching of the Bible on reconciliation can be summarized by a well-known article of faith recognized by all the churches: through Jesus Christ's death and resurrection, God reconciled the world to Himself, thus having made believers be reconciled among themselves. In the coexistence of Transylvanian churches, there also appear such sins which cannot be concealed by a generalization or a conspiracy of silence: one has to designate them by their name if one wants to walk on the way of forgiveness and reconciliation. This chapter gives examples from two fields where there is a serious need for concrete reconciliation or else we stand our ground. One of these is reconciliation to the past, the other one is reconciliation among nations. This is not a general, political question exclusively: it has an aspect concerning the church as well.
