Quote:
“Calvin certainly was not perfect, and it is against the grain of Reformed Christians to foster personality cults,” noted the president and general secretary of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches (WARC).

“John Calvin himself would insist Soli Deo Gloria, Only to God be the Glory,” they added.

Views expressed are always my own and not my employer's, my church's, my family's, my neighbors', or my pets'. The house plants have authorized me to speak for them, however, and they always agree with me.
