Two Birthdays!

July 10, 2007

July 10th is a wonderful day on my calendar. There are two wonderful birthdays to celebrate. First, at a whopping, 498 years old – getting near the big ‘500’ – John Calvin, who possessed and displayed for the world the grandest view of God I have ever read in literature. Second, a woman who is not quite 498, but also has an exceptionally high view of God, my little Sister – Lisa Starke.

Happy Birthday! May the Lord prolong both of your influence and legacy!

    Your sister looks like a sweet girl.

    So I will tell you I strongly disagree that “John Calvin possessed and displayed for the world the grandest view of God I have ever read in literature”.

    The Prophets and Gospel writers displayed for me the grandest view of God I have ever read in literature.

    John Calvin on the other hand wrote:
    “Whoever shall maintain that wrong is done to heretics and blasphemers in punishing them makes himself an accomplice in their crime and guilty as they are. There is no question here of man’s authority; it is God who speaks, and clear it is what law he will have kept in the church, even to the end of the world. Wherefore does he demand of us a so extreme severity, if not to show us that due honor is not paid him, so long as we set not his service above every human consideration, so that we spare not kin, nor blood of any, and forget all humanity when the matter is to combat for His glory”

    Yes, evil “unsaved” sinners may be punished by demons, but the demons are not a role model for us. This is the effect of Calvin’s evil demonic passage. Reject it!
