THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE CHURCH’S SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

by YUZO ADHINARTA in Vol. 4 No. 1 / Apr 2018



Abstract
This article responds to criticisms regarding pneumatology and the church’s social responsibility that are often joined and directed at Reformed tradition and theology. We will argue that, as reflected by its confessional standards, the Reformed tradition inherits a comprehensive doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Moreover, it also provides rich materials for Christian guidance and reflection on the church’s social responsibility. Therefore, if local churches neglect their social responsibility, it must not be because of the lack of the church’s teaching on its social responsibility; rather, the cause of this neglect has to be sought elsewhere.
