    Thought you all might get a kick out of this. I went to my school's web site today and this is what I find on the home page:

    Interesting. Has Calvin become a theologian that one must pretend to like even though you reject his theology? Is he simply celebrated as a momentous figure in church history?

    I'm not sure if you meant this rhetorically or not, but I think it is an interesting question. If Calvin has become a theologian that you must pretend to like, even though you reject his theology, then oh how the tables have turned in the last 50 years!

    My wife, Sonya, graduated from Biola in 1996. We were married a week later. I was a Captain in the Marine Corps back then.

    Maybe I live in a bubble or something, but Calvin seems to be a pretty popular guy. He seems to be more poplular than his theology.

    I agree, but I don't think this was the case 50-100 years ago. Ask some older, long time reformed brothers and sisters and I think you will find that the mention of Calvin's name was only acceptable in most circles if it was followed by "that hateful Frenchman who slit Servetus' throat in cold blood". The fact that so many, from a broad range of theological backgrounds, now view him positively testifies to the great work of reforming the church that the previous generation started, and which is still being carried out today.
