This second article further examines the hypothesis that the fragmentation in the ecclesiology of the Netherdutch Reformed Church (NRCA) is based on a fragmented understanding of humanity. The concept of fragmentation is considered as the result of a positivistic epistemology with regard to understanding the ontology of humankind. In light of this, the NRCA's understanding of humanity is examined as it appeared in the Church's polity of 'no equalisation' with regard to the justification of separate ethnic-based churches and the Church's current understanding of homosexuality. The content of an inclusive theological anthropology is considered and suggested for the Church as a necessary step on its journey towards inclusivity.
