Calvin: Love Him or Hate HimPastor Lutzer | January 28, 2007
John Calvin didn’t invent the doctrine of election.
Selected highlights from this sermon
In Geneva, the Reformation was spurred on by the theologian, John Calvin. Like Martin Luther, he too was flawed, but still mightily used by God. Having been given the pastorate of the city, Calvin went too far in restricting freedom of religion, but through various means, he sent missionaries and pastors throughout the world.
But what he’s probably most known for is the doctrine of predestination that’s still debated and discussed to this day.
