The Kuyperian Commentary

Politics, Economics, Culture, and Theology with a Biblical Viewpoint

Christian Political Party and Abraham Kuyper

McKendree Langley observes that though Kuyper desired a Christian political party in the Netherlands, yet it is no longer reasonable to expect such in the United States. Why is this the case? No reason is given. Politics has essentially been given over to be used by any other religious expression, but Christianity. This perspective is incoherent.

Much of modern political discussions find a parallel in the ecclesiastical discussions about reforming or re-starting. Many in the Anglican tradition attempted to reform their churches from within, while others attempted to re-start. There is a valid thrust in both approaches. There is a strategic model that can be contextualized. However, the goal is still a Christian political party.
