Cool Calvin Clips

I'm not really sure what's special about 500th birthdays if the person isn't living (I wouldn't get one of these), but John Calvin has some great quotes that I thought I'd share on his 500th birthday.

“Whoever is not satisfied with Christ alone, strives after something beyond absolute perfection.”

“The aim of everything is the sanctifying of God’s name.”

“As God, Christ is the destination to which we move; as man, the path by which we go.”

"The torture of a bad conscience is the hell of a living soul".

"There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice."

"There is no worse screen to block out the Spirit than confidence in our own intelligence."

Interestingly, I found an article from TIME magazine about Calvinism Changing the World.

And here's a picture of him:

Oh whoops, wrong Calvin!
