Abraham Kuyper, P.J. Hoedemaker, Klaas Schilder, A.A. van Ruler, common grace, ecclesiology, baptism


Abraham Kuyper was not universally admired and followed. In this paper, I examine some of his critics and the reasons for their criticism. These include P.J. Hoedemaker, Klaas Schilder, Foppe Ten Hoor, A.A. Van Ruler, and ministers of the Protestant Reformed Churches in America (PRCA). The main issues with which they disagree with Kuyper include his ecclesiology, common grace, and presumed regeneration. These differences are then evaluated.
