During the acrimonius discussion on the Masonry issue, many articles appeared in De Grondwet were published. This article, "What Should Have Been Done" was written by Teunis Keppel, the leading elder of Pillar Church, the individual who led the secession of this congregation from the Reformed Church in America. Keppel disagreed strongly with the position that the RCA took on the issue. Dr. Albertus C. Van Raalte is quoted by Keppel in one paragraph.
