What Abraham Kuyper said about religion can be said about the gospel. Here’s Kuyper:
Of course, religion, as such, produces also a blessing for man, but it does not exist for the sake of man. It is not God who exists for the sake of His creation; — the creation exists for the sake of God (Lectures on Calvinism, 45).
Now let me adapt Kuyper’s words to show that our proposal about the gospel, in The King Jesus Gospel, by making christology first and soteriology second, is doing the very same thing Kuyper thinks Calvinism is doing when it comes to the point of religion.
Of course, the gospel, as such produces also a blessing for all humans, but the gospel does not exist for the sake of humans. It is not God who exists for the sake of His creation; — the creation exists for the sake of God.
No, this is not an either-or but a first-second, and those who don’t think first-second doesn’t matter when it comes to gospel could perhaps consider that Kuyper was making the very same point: first God, then the blessing.
