It's modern, and the language of the future.
Dutch is the language of non-literate people.


Nice to see you speaking the language of the future. Whilst leaning back so much in history, its like a breath of fresh air.


We should not despise history. It is good to read the books of our forefathers. Our English and Scottish fellow believers also left a treasure

This part of Refoforum is called "In English". That's why.

Insofar as we agree with them. Sometimes a remonstrant wire runs through, someone told us.

Yes, the purpose was to accommodate the foreign visitors. There are Reformed people outside of your country, you know.

A porpose could also be for us to practice our English. For me personally I read quite a bit in English, both theological and work related. But writing and speaking requires more practicing.

In the past we had more people from abroad on this forum. A baptist lady from the UK, a Lutheran lady from the US. Bert Mulder from Canada seems to have returned, but he is not very active yet.

I always enjoy the presence of foreigners on this forum. They can offer a perspective on things that we overlook, because of the limited view on the World Church from our subculture.

@zeeuw: maybe. on the other side there's much precious and much to be proud on in our tradition. apart from this: Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
