Iman Kristen dan Ranah Publik: Sketsa Pemikiran Abraham Kuyper

David Kristanto, Tony Salurante

Abstract


Abraham Kuyper was arguably a Christian who had brought the implications of the Christian faith to the public sphere in a remarkable way. For Kuyper, the Christian faith had equally emphasized the importance of transformation of the heart and transformation of the society. Using a historical theology approach, this article attempts to present a sketch of Kuyper’s thought on the public implications of the Christian faith, which includes his concept of sphere sovereignty, visible organic church, and common grace. By elaborating on those three Kuyperian concepts, this article seeks to provide an introduction to Kuyper studies and to increase the reception of Kuyper’s theology in Indonesia.

Abstrak

Abraham Kuyper merupakan seorang Kristen yang dapat dikatakan cukup sukses dalam membawa implikasi iman Kristen ke ranah publik. Di mata Kuyper, iman Kristen yang memiliki penekanan kepada bagaimana hati seseorang diubah atau dilahirbarukan, harus juga menekankan, bagaimana iman tersebut diaplikasikan ter-hadap perubahan masyarakat, di mana seseorang tersebut tinggal, ke arah yang lebih baik. Melalui pendekatan teologi historika, artikel ini berupaya memberikan sebuah sketsa atas konsep-konsep pemikiran Kuyper seputar implikasi iman Kristen terhadap ranah publik, meliputi: ranah kedaulatan (sphere sovereignty), Gereja organik yang kelihatan (visible organic church), dan anugerah umum (common grace). Melalui ela-borasi atas ketiga konsep pemikiran tersebut, artikel ini diharapkan dapat menjadi pengantar kepada studi Kuyper sekaligus meningkatkan minat dan penerimaan atas teologi Kuyper di Indonesia.
