John Bolt: Bavinck on Culture

"As a scholar Bavinck has of course become the hub of the wheel around which I work—my scholarly work has been Bavinck and more Bavinck. But that's only the formal part. More importantly, the content of Bavinck's thought and the method of his theology have also deeply shaped me. Bavinck had an deeply sensitive eye for the revelation of God in the created world and in the providential guidance of human history and cultures. He sees deeply how the human quest for forgiveness, for meaning, for reconciliation, and for truth are part of our being created in God's image and therefore perennially present in all the religious quests of human beings."  --John Bolt on the Logos Blog
Gee, and I thought since the fall all mankind was totally corrupt and in open rebellion against God?  And all this time there is a true religious quest in human beings of all religions?  Sounds like liberalism to me.  But then I'm often called one of those supralapsarian "hyper" Calvinists.  Perhaps John Calvin was a hyper-Calvinist by John Bolt's definition?

  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
    Answer. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
