    These are the words you are replying to:

    "I have serious problems with the core doctrines of Calvinism (including the doctrine of some specific 'elect' people)..."

    Nothing about a "sinister motive" there.

    I will say, however, that I do not have an especially elevated view of John Calvin's character. (For instance, he did nothing to interfere with the burning at the stake of Michael Servetus, for "heresy.")

    His contemporary during the Reformation, Martin Luther, should receive much higher marks, in my opinion.

    alot of times people operate under a banner more effectively for some reason. you are right. making martyrs cant help your cause unless you are wishing them to do so.
    in Luthers and Calvins case, im so happy a priest never raped me in my ass.

    The OT was written in Hebrew, the NT was written in Koin Greek; By God's self appointed Prophets of old...

    "God spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets of old time." ~ Acts 3:21

    We really don't need the machinations of corrupted man to critique God's work. <wink>
