Johannes C. Sikkel: A Pioneer in Social Reform
by R.H. Bremmer

Christian Answers for Labour Unions, Capital and Labour, The Place of Women in Society, etc. 

The prophetical character of Sikkel's work lies, in the first place, in his Scriptural evaluation of the socialistic ideal of society. He discerned its anti-Christian character, which aimed to make the state all powerful. This criticism remains valid over against the neo-Marxists of today.

In the second place, Sikkel's prophetical spirit becomes evident in his struggle for a vision of a society in which the antithesis between capital and labour is taken away through the establishment of enterprise as an organic community. The Christian commandment to love one's neighbour is Sikkel's driving force here. This love for one's neighbour demands that social warfare be settled and peace be restored by means of consultation between capital and labour.

In the third place, Sikkel's zeal for a Scriptural appreciation of labour as something which belongs to man's task as God's image bearer is of great importance. Labour is not, in the first place, a matter of wages but of fulfilling one's God-given task. The question of wages should be viewed from that perspective.

 Seperation of Church and State




Thank you for your prompt service. My 13yr old and 10yr old sons enjoyed the first 3 books immensely (Scout). I just read "Secret of the Swamp" for the 3rd time to my 10yr old. He can't get enough of Scout. Thanks again, L.C.
