reformed/biblical observations on Christianity and culture

Thursday, January 04, 2007
Anyone committed to Christian culture, especially from the Reformed tradition is no doubt aware of Abraham Kuyper's famous words:

"There is not a square inch
in the whole domain of our human existence
over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all,
does not cry: 'Mine!'"

I was thinking this morning, of the other way that Kuyper's words could be taken: "Mine" could be taken as verb, rather than as a pronoun. It could be taken as a clarion call to develop every bit of creation - to dig down deep and ferret out all its buried potential - to the Creator's glory.

This is not what Kuyper meant. But its a pretty cool idea.
