Versetzung

This is a term used by Franz von Baader. Since the fall, humans exist in both the supratemporal and in temporal reality. They are displaced or ‘versetzt’ beings. This displacement is a change from our originally placement [being ‘gesetzt’] by God’s law [Gesetz].

Dooyeweerd’s view of creation is that we were created as supratemporal beings. This act of creation was complete. But we were placed or fitted into temporal reality in a separate act of being formed.
