John Calvin’s 500th birthday

What did I do to celebrate John Calvin’s birthday yesterday? Nothing except post this picture of him on the blog today. But I should do something original, shouldn’t I?

Perhaps I’ll celebrate by reading a chapter from Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion? No, that’s been done before.

Perhaps I’ll celebrate by hanging a picture of him in my church office? No, some even have his picture hanging in their washrooms already.

Perhaps I’ll celebrate by praying for him? No, some have prayed for his life and even his death centuries earlier.

Perhaps I’ll celebrate by naming my next child after him? Calvin Sam? No, it doesn’t have a good ring to it.

I think I’ll just admire this picture for a second and that’ll be it.

  1. If you want to read about John Calvin from the Jewish perspective and his assault against the true messiah of Israel Marcus Julius Agrippa read Stephan Huller's blog entry at entitled 'the Day of John Calvin the accursed, may his bones be ground into dust.' It will help round your opinion of this accursed man.

    May his bones truly be ground into dust.
