Christian Missions And The Civil Magistrate In The Far East

Westminster Theological Journal

by J. G. Vos, Th.M.

IN DISCUSSING Christian missions and the civil magistrate in the Far East we shall deal chiefly, though not exclusively, with those countries of the Far East where the most difficult problems in the relation between Christianity and the State have arisen in recent years, namely the Japanese Empire (including Korea and Formosa), Manchukuo and those portions of China which have come under Japanese occupation. We shall consider the conception of religious liberty in relation to missions, the ways in which the freedom of Christianity is infringed by the State, and the reaction of missions and churches to the demands of the State, and then we shall seek to formulate a Scriptural course of action with reference to these demands.

The Social And Economic Responsibility Of The Visible Church

Westminster Theological Journal

by J. G. Vos, Th.M.

THAT the visible Church has a responsibility in the social and economic spheres is and always has been quite generally accepted by Calvinists. Doubtless there has been, and still is, disagreement, and also vagueness, concerning the question of precisely what that responsibility is, but that it exists has been generally accepted by adherents of the Reformed Faith. The purpose of the present article is to attempt to define and clarify the basic principles involved in the matter of the social and economic duty of the visible Church. It is not proposed to consider in any detail ipatters which ought to be included in the content of the Church’s testimony concerning social and economic matters, but rather to discuss the relation of social and economic matters as such to the visible Church.
