Kerry Baldwin on Abuse, Sphere Sovereignty | Show Notes
In this episode, Jacob Winograd invites Kerry Baldwin to discuss some cultural aspects of relationship from a Reformed and anarchist perspective. Winograd is concerned is the church is failing to “be the church” as a means of societal preservation (Matt 5:13-16). We begin with a description of sphere sovereignty as formulated in the statement on Reformed Anarchism. Sphere sovereignty is a concept articulated in neocalvinism from Dutch theologian, Abraham Kuyper, and Reformational philosopher, Herman Dooyeweerd. This sets the stage for our discussion on the institutions of the family, church, and the state, the proper understanding of these institutions, and how abuse arise within them.
