Going further to look at Abraham Kuyper we must take in consideration the many Bijbelvorsers or Bible researchers who protested in the 12th and 16th century and at the statement of the Reformed faith in 37 articles written by Guido de Brès Confessio Belgica (Belgic Confession) which was being deleted by the General Synod 1905 of the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands (Gereformeerde Kerken in Nederland).
In this article we also review how Wes Bredenhof looks at Kuyper and his evolution of faith.

A look at the 19th century Low Countries situation in religion and politics and AP, the National Journal of the Presbyterian Church of Australia (PCA) looking at the Stone Lectures of Abraham Kuyper.
From isolation followers of Christ shall have to remember his sacrificial offering from home. Wednesday Apri 8, shall be a night where we look at the unleavened bread and fermented wine as a symbol for the body (flesh) and blood of Christ, which was given as a ransom price for our sins.
With the month of March, we come to days that we can greet Spring, but also to days that we remember the prophet of God, who came to suffer a lot. Already early, at the beginning of mankind, a first prophecy was given, that he would come into the world and would get wounded for […]
With internet facilities growing we have to look at the goods but also at the not so good matters of worldwide Bible education.
Review of the second decade of the 21st century and opening the 2020ies.
We should love, not in word or with the tongue, but in deed and truth.—1 John 3:18. Love based on right principles (a·gaʹpe) is a gift from Jehovah. He is its Source. (1 John 4:7) This kind of love is the highest form of love. While it can include affection and warmth, it is primarily identified by […]
In the time of Paul, Corinth was a busy Roman trading city on the narrow strip of land between the Ionian Sea and the Aegian Sea.
During his eighteen months in Corinth (in 51-52 C.E.), Paul Had got a fair impression of the attitude of the Corinthians.
In our life we, as a God-loving person, are best to trust God in His compassion and to merge with others who also believe in Him and want to entrust their lives to Him.
Academic journals form the lifeblood of scholarly debate and discourse. Theologies and textbooks, even grammars and lexicons, rarely give you the fuller, deeper picture into the larger debate on a topic. For example we can find Richard Cervin and Wayne Grudem discussing the role of women in church and their conversation concerning κεφαλή (“head”) in biblical literature.
In the 15th century, the invention of the Gutenberg press meant that every literate Christian could read the Bible for themselves. This sowed the seeds for the Protestant reformation in which the self-interpreted Bible supplanted the church magisterium as the basic authority for Christian teaching. In the 21st century, the Internet and specifically the blogosphere and […]
The Nazarene master teacher Jeshua (Jesus Christ) was not dragged to death but gave himself willingly to go to his death and to offer himself as a sacrificial lamb and a ransom offering for all sinners.
In 1909 the brotherhood throughout the world was affectionately remembered in prayer, and special grace for special trials was desired for each and all. On April 4 they found themselves united at the memorial table, like we too shall be united on April 19 remembering the Nazarene master teacher his Last Supper before he died at the stake.
Invitation for our special yearly memorial service on Nisan 14, April 19 2019.
Several of the Covenants which God made are styled “everlasting.” Not that they all are to be considered endless, but rather uninterrupted or perpetual until such time as may have been appointed for them to expire. The Covenant with Noah (Gen. 9: 9-17), that of the Law (Ex. 31: 16; Lev. 24: 7-9; Num. 18: […]
It has been pointed out that there are many parallels between the Law and the New Covenants. These extend to some particulars connected with the inaugurations of both. The first item of the Law was the Passover. The first item of the New Covenant is the antitype of this — “Christ, our Passover is sacrificed […]
That the New Covenant is applied to the Church of the Gospel age, and will also be applied to the people in the Kingdom age, is perfectly plain from a consideration of the specifications of the New Covenant as referred to in various Scriptures. “I will put my laws into their mind, and write them […]
In the previous chapters we looked at the change from Old to New covenant and the Seed which was already spoken of in the Garden of Eden. We saw that God made a covenant with David, so that we could have “the sure mercies of David” (Psalm 89: 20-37; Isa. 55: 3 ; Acts 13: […]
Three conditions have to be dealt with if the Abrahamic Covenant or promise is to bring a permanent blessing to “all the families of the earth.” These are the “sins of the past” both of Jews under the Old Covenant and of Gentiles under no covenant; sins committed, whether through weakness or wilfulness, after the […]
