Abraham Kuypers Spheres

 

that great old neo-Calvinist Abraham Kuyper pitched spheres

(no, he didnt play Baseball, he was a theologian of the first rank)

spheres of responsibility, authority and governance

some overlapping, some exclusive, and one all-encompassing

government, for instance, could have no say in faith or family

but by extension neither could have much to say in government

and thats where the rubber of my faith hits the road of my walk

if I were to govern I would have to govern as a Christian

I could neither avoid such, nor separate State from Faith

my God has ownership of all that is, there can be no sphere

where He is not, where He is not its first and foremost authority
