Great followup to my earlier post entitled “Guess What Calvinist? “Whosoever” Really Means “Whosoever”
John Calvin has always been a very polarizing figure in society. You either love him or you hate him. Some biographers have called him a jealous intolerant sectarian tyrant and a killer in search of absolute power, who ruled Geneva with a rod of iron. Others have called him a brilliant mind, praising his innovative organizational and theological ideas, manifesting a life devoted utterly to displaying the glory and majesty of God. Could these two views be of the same man? In searching for resources for my study of this historic figure, it was very difficult to find an unbiased source that truly gave me a picture of who this man was and how he perceived the world. Discerning what I can from multiple sources, I have tried to cobble together my view of who this man was and how he has impacted our culture.
