The Boundaries of Our Habitation: Why We Need Nations

Richard J. Mouw

Abstract


This article argues that to Abraham Kuyper human diversity, including nationhood, is God-ordained and fundamentally good. In that light, this paper explores Kuyper’s perspective on: how nations differ from states; how they are to be understood both eschatologically and ecclesiologically; the benefits and bond of national diversity; and in conclusion, the difference between sinful loyalty and an appropriate patriotism of compassion, recommending the latter for our politics today.
