In connection with the current discussion about the views of Dr. Kuitert and other theologians in the Netherlands, now and then someone will talk about the influence of contemporary German theology and theologians upon these theologians of the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands. This is, of course, a legitimate aspect of the discussion. And it is always proper to trace such connections and similarities, and to judge and condemn a certain theology or theological position on the ground of its likeness to and connection with a theology which is commonly recognized as being bad.
Evaluation of Kuitert’s View of Scripture (continued) In my last article on this subject I suggested that the answer to Dr. Kuitert’s argument concerning the so-called “human element” in Scripture and in the production of Holy Scripture lies in a proper understanding of what is known as “organic inspiration.” And I promised to develop this suggestion. To the fulfillment of this promise I now address myself. A few preliminary remarks are necessary, first of all.
The reader will notice that some of our regular departments are missing from time to time. This is intentional. We are trying to furnish a greater variety of material by two means: occasionally including special features, and introducing some new departments. This also gives the various department editors a “breather” now and then. In this issue we have another new department: Rev. Harbach’s Studies in Depth. This will replace his Trying The Spirits.
