1. Yes, Calvin is 500 years now! With Augustine he is still being read in the West. Quite amazing really. Would that his so-called Calvinists really read him! Rather than only Calvinism. I would take one line from the Institutes and his Sermons, over many Calvinist Creeds. Calvin’s early doctrine of predestination had mystery and humility in it. He always really maintained that God’s decree was a “fatal abyss” for those who did not study and investigate it according to the Word of God itself. Indeed there must be mystery in all of God’s doctrines!
