The logic of an idea, once it has gained a foothold in the human psyche, has a tendency to work itself out with a relentless consistency to its ultimate con-clusions even among men of disparate cultures who have little or no contact with or knowledge of each other, but more especially so where that idea is widely accepted by a community—unless it is effectively challen-ged. And so it has been with sacerdotalism and prelacy, which even the Reformation was not able to expunge entirely from the minds of Christian men, and so the wretched harvest produced by these ideas began to grow once more before the dust thrown up by the ploughing of the Reformation had settled on the ground. And this is all the more remarkable because, as Max Weber pointed out, “every consistent doctrine of predestined grace inevitably implied a radical and ultimate devaluation of all magical, sacramental and institutional distributions of grace, in view of God’s sovereign will.”

The Officials of the Roman Empire in time of persecution sought to force the Christians to sacrifice, not to any of the heathen gods, but to the Genius of the Emperor and the Fortune of the city of Rome; and at all times the Christians' refusal was looked upon not as a religious but as a political offence.

The history of Eastern Christianity under the rule of Islam has already been written. The story is a depressing one. The history of Western Christianity under the rule of Islam has yet to be written. Whether it will ever be written may well depend on how seriously the Church in the West takes the Great Commission in the next few decades and on whether the zeal and self-sacrifice of Muslims for their jihad can be matched by the zeal and self-sacrifice of Christians for the Great Commission - indeed, whether Muslims, with their zeal and self-sacrifice, can be converted from jihad to the Great Commission.

The Kuyper Foundation has an international ministry. Christianity & Society is sent to many people around the world, including the Third World, and to many Christian ministries and institutes free of charge due to the high costs of First World literature in Third World countries and the financial constraints placed on many ministries operating in both the First and Third Worlds. In addition to this the Kuyper Foundation is committed to publishing high quality books that address important issues facing the Church and society from a distinctively Christian (i.e. biblical) perspective. In order to do this and further develop our work we need funding from those who believe in the cause for which we are working. The growth of our literature, publishing, web site, conference and lecture ministries, and the establishing of an institute to facilitate the further development of the Foundation's work, requires a significant increase in our financial support base. The limits of our work are established by the giving of those who support the Foundation financially. Please support the ministry of the Kuyper Foundation regularly with your tithes and offerings.
