kuyper said it

When the question is put, Who had the clearest in sight into reformatory principle, worked out most fully, and applied most broadly, history points to the Thinker of Geneva and not the Hero of Wittenberg. Luther as well as Calvin contended for a direct fellowship with God,but Luther took it up from its subjective, anthropological side, and not its objective, cosmological side as Calvin did. Luther’s starting point was the special, soteriological principle of a justifying faith; while Calvin’s, extending far wider, lay in the general cosmological principle of the sovereignty of God.

    by the way, I think we need to have an argymint about eschatology. If your tweets really show what you think post-millennialism is, then you haven’t really grasped it.

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
