Description This paper is aimed to determine the appropriate Christian attitude towards the practice of belis (dowry) in Sumba Island. The biblical, anthropological, and sociological concepts of dowry are the conceptual framework for understanding and analyzing the concept of belis. Based on systematic reviews and asymmetric comparisons of the Sumbanese belis concepts and biblical concept of dowry, it is found that rejection of the practice of belis is unnecessary. Belis can be practiced by Sumbanese Christians with a critical attitude. The goal is the transformation of the belis culture. Transformation is achieved through several actions: doing belis principles that do not conflict with biblical principles; rejecting the principles that conflict with biblical principles; and avoiding the practices of belis which have been distorted by deviating motivations either from the biblical or the rights belis principles.
Keywords: Belis; Dowry; Marapu; Sumba; Cultural Transformation.
Tulisan ini bertujuan menentukan dengan tepat sikap orang Kristen terhadap praktik belis (mahar) di Pulau Sumba. Analisis terhadap konsep belis dilakukan dengan memanfaatkan konsep biblikal, antropologis, dan sosiologis tentang mahar. Berdasarkan systematic reviews dan perbandingan asimetris terhadap konsep orang Sumba tentang belis dan konsep biblikal tentang mahar, ditemukan bahwa praktik belis tidak bertentangan dengan iman Kristen. Tetapi orang Kristen Sumba harus mempraktikkan budaya belis dengan sikap kritis. Tujuannya adalah transformasi budaya belis. Transformasi dicapai melalui beberapa sikap, antara lain: mempertahankan prinsip-prinsip belis yang sesuai dengan Alkitab, menolak prinsip-prinsip yang bertentangan dengan Alkitab, dan menghindari praktik belis yang terdistorsi oleh motivasi yang menyimpang dari Alkitab maupun prinsip belis yang benar.
Kata-kata Kunci: belis; mahar; Marapu; Sumba; Transformasi Budaya.
