“The reformed church (is) always to be reformed” / this Reformed slogan does not directly derive from the Reformation, but a century later / emerged in early Dutch Pietism / Gisbert Voetius was a leading figure in (1589-1676) / attested by his student and friend Jodocus van Lodenstein (1620 in Delft – 1677 in Utrecht) / connected to the idea of finitum non capax infiniti: since the finite cannot grasp the infinite, there can be no perfect church in an imperfect time / idea of a permanent reformation, something that unfortunately often remains a mere slogan
