ET: The conflict has come. III. The “peace lovers” on the boards.

The third brochure by the Rev. Hogerzeil (see 1886.02) had addressed the provisional suspension as well as two incidents that had taken place immediately afterwards. Kuyper responds to both topics in this essay. In the course of thirteen chapters, he deals with both the suspension and the forced entry by suspended officers of the consistory into the annex of the Nieuwe Kerk (cf. 1898.01) in their capacity as members of the administrative commission (cf. 1886.03). Sometimes he gives an hour-by-hour chronology of the events. The brochure culminates with the charge that the irenic party in the Board of the Classis of Amsterdam—the so-called “peace-loving” party—had revealed the true face of ecclesiastical hierarchy. At the expense of the prospect of peace among brothers, they had painfully shown how hierarchy in the church effectively ends by elevating the authority of church leaders above the authority of Christ.

On page 39 Kuyper mentions that he would still very much like to publish his encyclopedia, his dogmatics, and finally a biblical commentary.
