Vos the Neo-Calvinist

These various forms of human life have each their own sphere in which they work and embody themselves. There is a sphere of science, a sphere of art, a sphere of the family and of the state, a sphere of commerce and industry. Whenever one of these spheres comes under the controlling influence of the principle of the divine supremacy and glory, and this outwardly reveals itself, there we can truly say that the kingdom of God has become manifest.

--Vos in The Kingdom of God and The Church

So it would appear that for Vos the Kingdom is not entirely spiritual right now!

(Thanks to Greg Baus for pointing this out in the responses to my post on Aug 7. This quote is worth singling out...)
