Abraham Kuyper and the Secularization of Society
Kuyper did not believe in the churchification of the Dutch society. He believed that the various spheres are independent of one another, though all spheres submit to the authority of Christ. He did not attempt to form an ecclesiastical bureaucracy, but he strove to obey God in whatever capacity he was in. Kuyper believed in a voluntary society of Christ’s followers who revolutionized society through example.
