ET: Uniformity: the curse of modern life. (Lecture held in the Odéon in Amsterdam, April 22, 1869.)

Lecture delivered for the Amsterdam department of the Young Men’s Association for the Advancement of Christian Life. This was the final lecture in this association’s series of winter lectures for 1868/1869. The founder and chairman of the association was W. van Oosterwijk Bruyn (1829–1903). According to Kuyper, the curse of modern life consists in its striving for uniformity. True unity is discovered only in Christ. The church and the state have to be freed from false uniformity. By thinking in a confederative way, the church could accept variety in its communities. It is argued, among other things, that the state should allow the colonies to adopt their own methods of administration and that proponents of Christian schools should attack the dominance of state schooling.
