The Banner, official organ of the Christian Reformed Churches, published in its editorial columns the following paragraph: “Third, we feel that the unbrotherly propaganda which the so-called missionary of the Protestant Reformed Church is making especially in some of our Western churches must cease before there can be any consideration of ecclesiastical union or ecclesiastical fellowship with those brethren. We are wondering whether all the members of the Protestant Reformed Church are aware of the deplorable tactics employed by its “missionary.” This minister moves into one of our communities and seeks to create dissatisfaction among the members of the Christian...

I shall now proceed to examine into the truth of the innuendoes of the Rev. Kuiper against our missionary. Let me first of all ask the editor of The Banner to make a sincere attempt to appreciate our Protestant Reformed view of the work of our missionary. He complains that the Rev.
