Significant changes have occurred in South Africa since the first and free democratic election held on April 27, 1994. Freedom of religion in that country is now thought to be a widely accepted value. However, in that democratic country, female converts have been experiencing persecution at the hands of their Muslim husbands, in contravention of the national laws. This study examines the issue of conversion of Muslim women in Cape Town and its concomitant themes: contextual mission and persecution. It argues that mission-shaped local churches are crucial to express authentic Christocentric witness that speaks to the realities of their religious as well as socio-cultural settings and responds to the needs of their contexts. It also argues that although in popular perception the biblical texts on persecution cannot readily apply to democratic contexts such as South Africa, God’s call to Christians to costly discipleship is also a call to a missiology of suffering.自 1994 年 4 月 27 日举行的第一次自由的民主选举来,南非发生了重大的变化。宗教信仰自由在那个国家现在被认为是一个被广泛接纳的观念。然而,在这个民主国家,信了主的妇女却经历着来自她们穆斯林丈夫的逼迫,这无疑是违反了国家法律。这项研究考查在开普敦的穆斯林妇女信主的问题和其相应的课题:处境化宣教和逼迫。本文认为宣教型教会是表达真实的以基督为中心的见证之关键,这见证对其宗教以及社会文化的背景说话,并对其处境的需要作出回应。本文还认为,虽然对关于逼迫的圣经文本的流行看法不能很容易适用于例如南非这样的民主处境,上帝对基督徒付代价作门徒的呼召也是苦难宣教学的呼召。Han ocurrido cambios significativos en Sudáfrica desde la primera elección libre y democrática del 27 de abril de 1994. La libertad de religión en ese país ahora se considera como un valor ampliamente aceptado. Sin embargo, en ese país democrático, las mujeres convertidas han estado sufriendo persecución por parte de sus maridos musulmanes, en contravención de las leyes nacionales. Este estudio examina la conversión de las mujeres musulmanas en Ciudad del Cabo y sus temas concomitantes: la misión contextual y la persecución. Contiende que iglesias locales misioneras son cruciales para expresar un testimonio auténticamente Cristo céntrico que trata sobre las realidades de sus entornos religiosos y socioculturales y responde a las necesidades de sus contextos. También argumenta que aunque la percepción popular de los textos bíblicos sobre la persecución indica que no se pueden aplicar tan fácilmente a contextos democráticos como el de Sudáfrica, el llamado de Dios a los cristianos a un discipulado costoso es también un llamado a una misiología del sufrimiento.This article is in English.
