Who Was More Important: Martin Luther or John Calvin?
"Question number one, who was more important. Martin Luther or John Calvin. I don't know. I wrote a book about Martin Luther. He's German, I love him. He's an amazing figure and just an absolutely amazing figure. I don't get that impression of John Calvin. I don't think a biography in John Kevin would be as interesting. But what do I know? The real answer is I don't know. But actually, I think my Martin Luther book is available on Kindle for four 99. I just heard that. Like yesterday, by the way, that just occurred to me. We don't put these questions into sell my books, folks. I'm probably losing money on that deal. But I'm extremely proud of the Martin Luther book. And I don't know enough about John Calvin to answer that. I would my guess would be Martin

"Some made a gazing stock. Some proscribed some most cruelly tortured some obliged to flee. We are all pressed with straits loaded with dire executions lacerated by slanders and treated with the greatest indignity look now to our adversaries. I mean the priesthood. At who's beckon pleasure others ply their enmity against us and consider with me for a little. By what zeal. They are actuated the true religion which is delivered in the scriptures in which all to hold they readily permit both themselves and others to be ignorant of to neglect and despise and they deem it of little moment what each man believes concerning that in christ or disbelieves provided he submits to the judgment of the church with what they call implicit faith nor are they greatly concerned though they should see the glow of god. Dishonored by open blasphemies provided not a finger is raised against the primacy of the apostolic see and the authority of the holy mother church. Why then do they wore for the mass purgatory pilgrimage and similar follies with such fierceness and acerbity that though they cannot prove one of them from the word of god they deny godliness can be safe without faith in these things. Faith drawn out if i may so express it to its utmost stretch. Why just because their belly is their god and their kitchen their religion and they believe that if these were away they could not only not be christians but not even men for although some wallow in luxury and other speed on slender crusts still they all live by the same pot which without that fuel might not only cool but altogether freeze he accordingly. Who is most anxious about his stomach. Proves the fiercest champion of his faith in short the object on which all to a man are bent is to keep their kingdom safe or their belly filled not one gives even the smallest sign of sincere zeal nevertheless they ceased not to assail our doctrine and to accuse defame it in what terms day may in order to render it either hated or suspected they call it new and of recent they carpet as doubtful and uncertain. They bid us. Tell by what miracles. It has been confirmed. They ask if it'd be fair to receive it against the consent of so many holy fathers and the most ancient custom they urge us to confess either that it is schismatic uil in giving battle to the church or that the must have been without life during the many centuries in which nothing of the kind was heard. Lastly to say there is little need of argument for its quality may be known by its fruits namely the large number of sex the many seditious disturbances and the great licentious nece which it has produced no doubt it is a very easy matter for them in presence of an ignorant and credulous multitude to insult over an undefended. 'cause but we're an opportunity of mutual discussion afforded that acrimony which they now poured out upon us in frothy torrance with as much license as impunity would assuredly voile dry one i in calling it new they are exceedingly injurious to god who sacred word deserved not to be charged with novelty to them. Indeed i very little doubt.

"One by john calvin translated by henry beverage prefatory address to his most christian majesty the most mighty and illustrious monarch francis king of the french his sovereign john calvin praise peace and salvation. In christ sire. When i first engaged in this work nothing was farther from my thoughts than to write. What should afterwards be presented to your majesty. My intention was only to furnish a kind of rudiments by which those who feel some interest in religion might be trained to true godliness and toiled of the task chiefly for the sake of my countrymen the french multitudes of whom i perceived to be hungering and thirsting after christ while very few seemed to have been duly imbued with even a slender knowledge of him that this was the object which i had in view is apparent from the work itself which is written in a simple and elementary form adapted for instruction but when i perceived that the fury of certain bad men had risen to such a height in your realm that there was no place in it for sound doctrine. I thought it might be of service. If i were in the same work both to give instruction to my countrymen and also lay before your majesty a confession from which you may learn what the doctrine is that. So inflames the rage of these mad men. Who are this day with. Fire and sword troubling your kingdom for. I fear not to declare that what i have here. Given may be regarded as a summary of the very doctrine which they vociferating ought to be punished with confiscation exile imprisonment in flames as well as exterminated by land and sea. I am aware indeed. How in order to render our causes hateful to your majesty as possible. They have filled your ears and mind with atrocious insinuations. But you will be pleased of your clemency to reflect that neither in word nor deed could there be any innocence where it sufficient merely to accuse when anyone with the view of exciting prejudice observes that this doctrine of which i am endeavouring to give your majesty in the count has been condemned by the suffrage is of all the estates and was long ago stabbed again and again by partial sentences of courts of law he undoubtedly says nothing more than that it has been sometimes violently oppressed by the power infection of adversaries and sometimes fraudulently and insidiously overwhelmed by lies cavs and calumny while a causes unheard it is violence to pass sanguinary sentences against it it is fraud to charge it contrary to its desserts with sedition in mischief that no one may suppose we are unjust thus complaining you yourself most illustrious sovereign convenience witness with what lion calumnies it is daily traduced in your presence as aiming at nothing else than to rest the sceptres of kings out of their hands to overturn all tribunals and seats of justice to subvert all order and government to disturb the peace and quiet of society to abolish all laws destroy the distinctions of rank in property and in short turn all things upside down and yet that which you here is but the smallest portion of what is said for among the common people are disseminated certain horrible insinuations insinuations which if well-founded would justify the world in condemning the.

Former Coach Nolan Richardson on This Season's College Basketball League
"Coach. Let me ask you about a topic that we had here. Most of yesterday and running even until today and that was about kentucky this year with john calvin perria an unusual amount of criticism which comes with the territory when you when you lose sixteen games but what. What did you see this year when when you saw kentucky play well you know thing about kentucky. They've got they've got some pretty good talent. But so have the other teams you know. They're not playing a bunch of guys a lot of teams that are chopped liver. They're playing teams that have some good players also and because of the time that the things are today. There's a lot of players a lot of key is that you don't know us. They're pretty good. And if you put him a you're to put them in a kentucky uniform at and make a lot of difference in the world because the tradition win a lot of ball games to We've gaels team you know. He's been very fortunate to be able to track some of the top players in the country. i'm not sure he's got those kind of players on this year's basketball team so let's get to the top of the heap right now in the i mean there's two new coaches nato arkan at alabama and eric muslim at arkansas. Who have really surprise a lot of folks. These were these were schools that were picked to finish. I think in an eighth or ninth and they have exceeded expectations starting with alabama. What what are you. What are you see when you watch our coach team. Very good very well. You know that they play. They played pretty quick. ballgame It speak to exactly what i said. You got two new coaches that are leading Leading and are winning ball games with basically new teams you players we would say that's why said that. The players today in the teams today are so balanced. Is it you know. I wouldn't be surprised if a if a team that Seated number fourteen when the national championship surprised me. Because i it's you you're not you know the the the the regular name teams are not there anymore. You know the the north carolina's ucla's kentucky's mean you used to just turn on turn on your set and that's those are the only team here you would hear about. Now you got gonzaga a a super bowl club. And i think alabama is right up there with that bunch and i'd also arkansas's it is that is ranked up there with that bunch. In terms of the national scene everyone keeps talking about gonzaga as as being the absolute lock. And i know you just what you just said about a fourteen seed. Do you think they are head and shoulders above the field or do you think it can tighten dramatically once tournament. But i love the coach. There at gonzaga i think he is phenomenal. Phenomenal job but it's you know. Every game has his own merits and and to win. Stab believe is six. You've got to win six to win at all Is going to be a challenge. Simply because of the fact that there's going to be a team out there that you have no clue of being close to win. That could upset them who they would might meet. You just never know every ball game so important. You know every single ballgame. It's so important so You know when teams run around and try to get scouting reports at this later date. I think it's all with if you if you if you're not ready to play then if gonzaga's not really ready to play it can be beaten but if they're ready to play their chances of winning all

"Yeah I think. That's a really good way of saying it because you immediately how you started, which is we don't know very much what we a few things that we do know we do know that the history of the church and it seems like the story of scripture identifies that this serpent is some sort of embodiment or incarnation or representation of Satan and Calvin. I Love Calvin on Genesis Chapter and you've never read John Calvin on Genesis three you should do it because one. He's GonNa say some Wackadoo stuff that you never think Calvin would say and you're gonNA realize wow this was a man of his time and This is not helpful but what he says Burst one is this. He says, the revolt of Satan is proved by other passages of scripture and it is impious badness to scribe to God the creation of any evil and corrupt nature, and then it goes on to say. I love this. We must now enter in on that question by which vein and in constant minds are greatly agitated. Why did God allow Adam to be tempted essentially album If you're even asking the question, you are vein and in constant mind. I loved that he just does that he's like you know it's a really good question, but it's really a question that proves the point of Genesis three which you are rebellious terrible center. But no but like I think it's important to say here's what we do. We do know that the serpent in the garden is either representative of an embodiment of an incarnation of Satan or the satanic spirit. And, that is that we're where he came from. We don't know. We know that as Calvin said, it is impervious madness to ascribe to God, the creation of any evil and corrupt nature. and. We can say that this say Satan or serpent has emerged as a result of. Great Evil, and rebellion against God pro potentially the first rebellion which would have happened in the heavenly host or the angelic. That fear anything to add to that no, I think that's good and again like we've talked about this elsewhere, I'm wondering, do we have shown? Do you like out? Bugden I am to the On. Yeah. Sure. Soon turned to it knows. This show. The show notes are always a name. It claim it kind of reality. Is I'm just GONNA. Say This there are there are nice concise things written about the why is the serpent there and which is not to say, it's a simple topic that we've talked elsewhere I would I want us to get an now? You guys do I want us to get to some of the Other aspects of the story. And not get bogged down in. Why is there a serpent there although that is a really big question that we should ask say my line like the Texas not. Concerned just as the Texas not concerned with. US asking like we'll wait. How did God you know? Light. Before it's also not really interested in telling you how he got there all that stuff I mean they're. As Calvin would say there are other places that talk about it. Absolutely. So what's really happening in the passage if the main point of the passage isn't the origin of the serpent or Satan what's really going on at a high level across the the Ark of genesis three well, again, we're trying to ask and answer some fundamental questions and the question that's being asked in. Answer here is what's wrong, right so we had we had why am I here or who am I would be the other way saying that you know what's my purpose and we've answered those and now the question is what's wrong and so what's wrong begins with well, you know what you had an opportunity to surf died not circa and here's how that played out. and. It's not an again what you just said there you had an opportunity to serve God or not serve God and that aligns with what is really the rebellion of genesis three because it's not the the illusion of the tree is not just like they ate the wrong fruit from the wrong tree. Are Rejecting God's rule and reign and putting in place their own. Chances wanting to this one and two is God's ruling or just, and they're good and here we are in chapter three and we're GONNA have its I. Say. They're inject their unjust and are not good. Yeah. And with a practical application of that being that immediately, the created order is inverted here. God said by told Adam and Eve ruin rain over all things in the animal and plant life. We saw the demonstration of that in genesis two with Adam naming the animals right kind of providing taxonomy. That was that was an outworking of that call. But then in genesis three, what's happening no longer are they ruling and reigning, cultivating and subduing in God's way and God's world now this serpent has put them at the bottom right. So he's in the created order. He has put them in the position of he is now going to rule and reign over them through the temptation of the of the false promise of becoming God. Riser, let's make sure we've traced that. So like God God. Reigns enroll than he delegates rain enroll to the man and the woman, and then as we're GonNa see the man and the woman decide no, I don't want my part I want all of it as essentially what's happening you know when the when the fruit is eaten and as a result of wanting all of it, they essentially get none of it. So they go from the highest place to the lowest place and so of course, that means that we will need a human count the lowest place, and then be exalted to the highest place to make it right. Just, stuck in there. Did you. See your faces. Copy. So. So the rule and reign of God is being rejected for the rule and reign of Adam and Eve, and it says that it says, okay. Well so Satan begins with the temptation that God actually say you should eat of any tree in the garden he gets into conversation with them and it goes on in verse four to say but. The serpent said of the woman, you will not surely die for God, knows that when you eat of it, your eyes will be open and you'll be like God, knowing good and evil. So when they saw the woman saw that the tree was good for food that it was a delight to the eyes of the tree was redesigned to make one. Wise. She took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to your husband who was with her and he ate then the eyes of both were opened they knew that they were naked they sowed fig leaves together and they made themselves loin cloth. So here I guess a question that I think emerges at this point is win win win it. Says they will be like God that's the promise. Aren't they already in the image of God? What is the allure of the promise? It doesn't read like if you're Adam and eve, why is this alluring? What is there something that's going on? That's maybe not just right here on the surface if you're reading and saying well I thought they were already liked got. Yeah this is the serpent offering that they can be like got in a way that they were not created to be. And so they were created to reflect God and the serpent. Rival God and that's what they choose. They choose to associate. You think about what's offered here. It's It's. That would give them the knowledge of good and evil. And apparently these the knowledge of good and evil is something that belongs only to God. Otherwise, it would be fine for them to have it and so Basically, this is the lure that we all face. Well, okay. I can look like God if I am Ju-. If Gracious Ingest Merciful on. If I rule and subdue in the way that I've been designed to, and if I'm fruitful multiply the way he's designed to do or I can set myself in the place of God and decide that I'm an audition omnipotent. You know all knowing a sovereign ruler of everything that I see which is that's an advocate. Nezar. If you're if you're familiar with the story of Daniel, that's exactly what he articulates is look at everything that I created.

"Or even when we are come into the verge of salvation but what does biblical repentance or what should it look like brother? Well, I wanNA quote something that is looked at in on Ligonier website they was an article from their table talk magazine and they were referring to the passage in Matthew chapter three versus seven through ten, which says. speaking of John the. Baptist. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Saggy sees coming to his baptism, he said to them you brood of vipers who warned you to flee the wrath. Flee from the raft to come bear fruit in keeping with repentance and do not presume to say for yourselves we have Abraham as our father for I. Tell You God is able to raise a is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham. Even. Now, the axe is laid to the root of the trees every tree therefore, the does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire and I liked the two quotes that I read in this article that I thought were fantastic. The first is from the article itself is repentance expresses sorrow for the ways in which we have offended God referring to Psalm fifty one four, but it also is much more. Repentance is a change of mind and. Actions. Where in we see our approval of wickedness and justification of bad behavior. It is foremost a decisive reorientation of one's life away from the self and toward the Lord. So basically what they're saying is the the word for repentance mostly you know oftentimes you'll hear people say well, it just means change your mind. You know if if you're telling people, they have to change their behavior you're giving you're adding to work a lot of people don't like when you preach. Evangelism Sharing The Gospel you tell people repent Oh you can't tell people to repent. That's that's making them do a work. No. Repentance, the word yes means change of mind. But as they say in this article, it is a change of mind and action in other words your mind has so captivated is so captive to God. So captivated by the fact that you've sinned against God that you turn as a result. In a different direction, a todd friel on wretched radio likes to talk about if I tell you, we're I'M GONNA drive to Florida and I driving north and it's getting cold and you're starting to see Moose and you realize I'm going the wrong way. You don't want me to just change my mind and say, yeah, we are going the wrong direction and keep going you want me to repent in other words change my mind and changed my direction start heading south Florida, which has hurricane coming right now. So I don't us such a good idea. But The point is is that it is a change of mind that leads to a of action and so when it's not just even saying, wow, that was a sinful thing I did I've never going to do that it is literally reorienting your mind and your thoughts and your actions. To come in alignment with God and his word so that it is A. Complete. One eighty turning back for gun. It doesn't mean you're never gonNA fit a falter again it doesn't mean you're never gonna again but it means that your directions now aimed back toward God and you start to get off that path. You continually repent and course adjust and go back in the direction of obedience to God, and he also quote from John Calvin in the this article where it says repentance is an inward matter which has its seat in the heart and soul, but afterwards yields its fruits in a change of life. So repentance. It's in your mind it's in your heart..

So. Wall. Thomas Brooks laying down. To say you go go read you. Some puritans raid you some puritans. So, you know. What's interesting about how Christ was with these guys when you think about it, Christ had more in common with the Pharisees than with other first century Jews. But he did not support or endorse in any way shape or form the manmade rules of traditions that the Pharisees would add to God's holy law. And speaking about this John Calvin Said said this concerning Jesus's encouragement, he said look quote.

Is we connect to putting onto says who want to create these mindful Brian's to Communities across the Indian subcontinent which includes India Sri Lankan Bangladesh and together. They basically formed this amazing sustainable brand. We specialize in three categories which is living giving and dining and we for Amazon sellers specifically we work on a mind to market model where we essentially commission design ideas into actual physical products. Odd Handmade all sustainable. That's what we do. Co.

For a few cases I run a couple of businesses so I I am an Amazon seller as well we do. We have a full service. Agency called E COM DNA. And then. Recently we won't sell Candy Candy is. It's kind of to fill the gap between having a full service agency and having someone to help you out on Amazon. So what we do. Is We do the mundane boring tasks that you don't want to do. As long as the central we do it so unlimited tasks in south central for a set fee a month having Luca but already trying there's no h There's no need to explain to them how to do things just log tasks with us and we get to the outcome rather than south central they just keep telling you to submit the case again.

All businesses will your clients business from I. Guess say January February this year to the car employing which is just the end of April twenty twenty at the time of recording this so anyone wanted to stop the bay question. Because there's been a lot. I think I can say a little bit. If you want please on we have a lot of clients in both US EU. All over the place I said. The biggest challenge with with solid candidate with being assistance is the notifications because we do account monitoring insane at the moment by boxes coming and going everything appearing and disappearing all day every day so it becomes a monitoring monitoring listings becomes a huge Odua task. Obviously Start Shopping Amazon stopping everyone shipping in between was middle of March and April with a big pain especially in Europe and in Europe at the moment still that closed down French film incentives and Yukon Ship Inter Intra country between certain countries. They went shipping into Italy during using European fulfillment networks that you could if you had a majority in the country. So what we've been doing is kind of helping clients now. We are in business to move things around us three pl walls and make sure that we can still have live this things every marketplace because in general sales volume on most things that we've been seeing is in down too much unless you are in a very very essential category climbs volume is significantly up volume is up but it really depends what category you're in. Las People are getting hammered. Here which is not good but Amazon is actually moving back up because we had a lot of deliverability slip away for a long time. Yeah I think. Overall my understanding of Amazon's sales volumes that March twenty twenty twenty percent up on March twenty nineteen. So yes it needs to. Yes thanks for that feedback at interesting the notifications thing which hadn't struck me with his true. I suppose managing that is you know because everything's a bucking Bronco. At the moment.

So what have you been seeing on the sort of the pros and cons of the current situation right? Yeah I mean he talked about the FDA if being restrictions was a huge hit majority of our clients do fall into the central category. So a lot of them actually really grew especially in the month of March. April would say it started to kind of Plateau still high numbers. But it's not in a crazy rise right now now as far as you know clients. That aren't able to ship items in. We did have a few of those. Actually one of our biggest clients was in the situation where they are not in a central product and they had to switch to FBI scenes in F. B. M. warehouses wedge was able to help sustain their numbers. And that now even even as we're going along we're still not for all clients able to ship items in. It's kind of a hit or miss but it does. Actually we work with Amazon Launch Pad. So we get some insights from them and everything like that and they basically said you know you're number one dollars are going to be the ones that you start to see that you can send FBI inventory in and it will kind of go down from your release. You know your least popular products so we are seeing that pretty consistently where the number one new products force given brands are starting to open up. The definitely seem very similar things to John where definitely specific categories or. Do we really really well. And others are taking a pretty big hit. Just losing the prime badge in switching. Fbi everything like that yet. It seems to be a common theme but it could target reinforce because every so often you have an assumption but that proves wrong and those are the things you think you know. That aren't true. It is good to tease out but it sounds like some predictable things but also in sing sing about the number one side is kind of by. Castle Grill by sorry by client will my status it by account. That's kind of reassuring the islands in willing to do that. There's some kind of common sense there. So cannot identify not much on the management side but obviously very very in the global source thing side of things I mean. What are you saying from the sourcing side of things Timothy? Overhaul what you've seen the two major mindsets shifts that you've seen Onto minutes we will have one is even an all re looking at. You know we can't hedge and do the entire Susan from China for example and they're looking at we diversify these risk factors go to different sectors. You know the thing supply chain is better at the same time. I think we do talk about Obama's and sellers and they're bigger concern. You know when you create a brand. How safe is the brand which as always been a big concern for them and should we be really focusing on creating and selling existing products and and what we see is in Zuma's that I'll buying out for stories looking looking for things that have a meaning behind and I think we really strongly believe us as a brand associate company week and of Supply that story Do a

"Us now. We will bow and humble reverence before the majesty of Our God. I love the part. Where Calvin kind of explains what would Jesus means by E. Eli Eli Lama Lama. Subject Fanny said that wrong but we'll focus more on the fact that when he says Eli Eli. I always wondered why that part was in a different language in different gospels puts. Eli Eli is like this is Aramaic. For whatever and I was like. Why does that put that there? But then it makes sense. When you think about the Pharisees Go. Oh He's calling for Elijah. L. Calvin goes. They know he's not calling for Elijah. Elijah is a full name in. Eli a half name and so. That's clearly not what he's doing but even at that point where the sun is. Turning black the Pharisees are still not taking Jesus seriously maybe calling for Elijah. Let's wait and see if Elijah shows up and they kind of have like a little. It's almost like they're having a laugh over it. And then you compare that to the Roman guard who sees the sun go black. Jesus died on the Cross and he goes. You know we really did. Crucify the son of God and that that comparison between these two groups of people one taking Jesus seriously in one night. It really got to me the way he did. That was just excellent and this that was just one of many moments where I thought my goodness. This is one of the best sermons.

"He must then be entirely persuaded and assured that he will always find favorable access toward goddess father behold a certain and infallible testimony of the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ when in the midst of such extreme anguish where he was he does not cease to call God his father and not in pretense but because he was assured that he would find him reciprocal and calling upon him behold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ yet he repeats the words because the fight is difficult as if he must defy all the temptations which Satan prepared for him and he seeks confirmation of faith that he might always persist in calling upon God. Now he said further. Why have you forsaken me? Of course that was according to what he could conceive of as a man for he had enter into that experience but not to be conquered by it for Saint. Peter says it was impossible that he should be held by the pains of death. Acts Chapter two verse. Twenty Four. That is that he be seized like a poor man who altogether gives way in his crushed. It was impossible says Saint Peter and so the victory was in the midst of the fight in that is to glorify all the more our Lord. Jesus CHRIST DAVID HAD EXPERIENCED. This partially furred is certain that in the midst of his afflictions however great they were. He persisted to call upon God hoping in him but since he was frail man. His faith was very often shaken as he confesses but in our Lord. Jesus there was a special consideration that he had all his passions well controlled because of the integrity. That was in him and there was in him. No natural corruption as sometimes. It happens to us that our pains will proceed from a good. 'cause we may have good reason for our fear and our anxieties but all the same there will always be vice mixed in it since corruption is in all our passions but in our Lord. Jesus there was nothing trouble or disorder. He was not so seized with anguish. He always had his hope fixed right. Leon God he called only upon him and remained firm and constant and knowing well that he would be savior even to the end. It is said some of those who were near him mocked him. He who calls Elijah? Let us see if Elijah will come to help him. There is no doubt that this blasphemy was pronounced by none other than the priests who were trained in the law. And were they confused by what. Jesus said not at all for the Prophet whom they called. Elijah is not named l. e. the name then had not confused them for. There is no doubt implied. Seeing that the word Elisha is pronounced entirely different from the word L. E. That is my God that could not cause any ambiguity. It is then by certain malice and imp- impudence that the reproach that he calls Elijah was put upon our lower Jesus Christ but if we find that strange can we find examples like it today for one. We'll see today the Papis who turn away and deprave by their slanders what we teach what we teach is drawn from the pure truth of God and they knowingly blasphemed to render our doctrine odious too many ignorant people and people who do not hear what we preach every day they depraved falsely. What we say and they take it entirely the wrong way in order to give plausibility to their lie and to entertain poor ignorant people with it. That is how the enemies of God possessed by. Satan have shoved aside with malice the words of our Lord Jesus Christ and today among the papist one sees the same thing and not only is that perceived in the papacy but even among us there are belligerence. Who will say that? We wish to make believe that. Jesus Christ was devoid of all hope when we see that he sustained the anguish of death that he was cast into the depths inasmuch as he was there are name and he sustained the burden of our sins. But that in no way takes away from the constancy of his faith in these rascals who make profession of the Gospel never cease to knowingly blasphemed by which they show that they are worse than those of whom it is here spoken seeing. Then that the devil today sharpens the tongues of his agents and that each one by such brutal impudence comes to release his venom against the purity of doctrine. Let us not think it strange if our Lord. Jesus was slandered but may we bear patiently. These blasphemies praying to God as it is said in the Twelfth Psalm that he may destroy these villainous tongues which are so full of villainy and of evil in which tend to blaspheme has name an obscure his truth here. The Gospel writer records that there was there a vessel full of vinegar in that they took a read a long branch and at the end of it. They attached a sponge to make it reached the mouth of our Lord. Jesus Saint John's speaks here. More distinctly for he says that Jesus Christ knowing that all things were finished said that he was thirsty and he pronounced once again. It is done all this fulfilled. This then is what we have to note here when this drink was given to the son of God namely that he did not ask to drink because he was thirsty for he had refused earlier. Why for this drink was given in order to shorten one's life now our Lord Jesus wished and everything and buy everything to wait for the hour of God. His father and patients rest that then is why he did not wish to hurry his death but rendered himself peaceable and obedient until all was fulfilled. Indeed this despite that he had not yet given up the spirit and he was not raised from the dead. He means that until this hour he had shown a complete obedience so that nothing now hindered him from giving his soul to God his father. This then is how we must take this passage. It is that our Lord. Jesus declared that nothing more was lacking for our redemption except to depart from the world which he was ready and prepared to do and to surrender his soul to God seeing that he had acquitted himself of his whole duty as mediator and that he had done all that was required to appease the wrath of God toward us and that the satisfaction for our sins was accomplished. He was willing to ask for this drink now. We have here are very noteworthy. An excellent sentence when it is said all is fulfilled for. He intends that by his death. We have all that we need to have access to God and to obtain grace from him. Not that his resurrection should be excluded by that. But it is as if he said that he has performed his office faithfully and that he has not come to be partial savior but that he had admitted nothing according to the will of God his father since that is so we are instructed to fully give our confidence to our Lord. Jesus Christ knowing that all parts of our salvation are fulfilled and what he did in endured for our sakes that is also why his death is called a perpetual sacrifice by which the believer's elective. God are sanctified. Do we wish then to have certainty that God is father to us? Do we wish to have liberty to call upon him? Do we wish to have rest and our consciences? Do we wish to be made more fully certain that we are held to be righteous in order to be acceptable to God? Let us abide in Jesus Christ and not wonder here there and let us recognize that he is where all perfection rests those who wish for other ways and who looked from one side to the other to supply what we must be lacking in the death and passion of our Lord Jesus Christ renounce fully the power of which we are now speaking they tread underfoot the blood of Jesus Christ for they dishonor it all is fulfilled what follows then that we may know that there is not a single particle of Virtue or merit in us. Unless we apply ourselves to this fountain that then is how our faith ought to be set on our Lord. Jesus Christ besides we know above all that when he was offered as a sacrifice it was to absolve us forever and to sanctify perpetually as scripture says may we then have no other sacrifice than this one for we deprive ourselves of him and of the fruit of his death and passion when we seek other sacrifice than that which he offered in his person. That is what we have to remember. Now it is said again. He cried with a loud voice and gave up the spirit and this cry was I. Give back my soul or my spirit into your hands. We see how our Lord Jesus Christ so fought against the pains of death. That from then on he was conqueror over it and he could gain his triumph having surmounted. What was most difficult and this pertains to us that is we must apply it to our own use for. We are assured not only that the son of God fought for us but that the victory which he acquired for us belongs to us that today we should not be frightened by death knowing that the curse of God which was terrible to us is abolished death instead of being able to wound us like a fatal plague serves us as medicine to give us passage into life so now he takes the prayer made by David in the thirty first psalm. I commend to you my spirit. Some thirty one verse five. It is true that David said this wall in the midst of dangers. As if he said Lord hold me in your protection for my soul is between my hands it is there shaking for. I see myself exposed to all hazards. My life is hanging from thread. It won't remain unless you take me into your care. That is how David by his prayer constituted God as his protector for the guard that God keeps over us. Is that being withdrawn from this world? We are hidden under his wings to rejoice in his presence as Saint. Paul speaks of it. In Second Corinthians in our Lord Jesus also pronounce this prayer and declares that he dies peacefully having conquered the fight which he had to have to sustain us and achieve his triumphs and our name into our Prophet and salvation he fully declared by the same means that God is his savior and that he keeps his soul as a safe trust for. That is what this request that. He makes him implies when he says my. God you are the guardian of my soul even after death when our Lord Jesus speaks so it is as if he assured us all that we cannot fail and committing ourselves to our God now especially we have to note that Jesus Christ saying my God. I commend to you. My spirit acquired the privilege which is attributed to him by Saint Stephen in acts seven. It is that he was made guardian of all our souls. For how is it that Saint Stephen Speaks and has death? Lord Jesus I commend to you my spirit. Act Seven fifty nine. This then is how. Saint Stephen shows the fruit of this request which was made by Jesus Christ namely that now. We can address ourselves to him and we should do it. He declares that since he was given to us as shepherd by God is father. We have no doubt to be peaceful both in life and in death knowing all will profit us and we will be turned to our advantage and saint. Paul says having Jesus Christ he will find gain in everything that he will no longer lack anything and either life or death for all will be useful to him. Philippians one versus twenty to twenty four so then let us learn now when we are besieged by death that Jesus Christ has taken away the sting which might prick us fatally in the heart. Death will no longer be harmful to us when our Lord Jesus gave his soul to God his father. It was not only to be preserved in his person but also to acquire this privilege which he preserved for us by virtue of this request. There is still this triumph of which we have made mention which already profits us for our Lord Jesus shows how precious his death is when he so confidently departs to God. His father to lead us to him and to show us the way to him but the main thing is that we may know that the fruit of it comes back to us for. He tore up the warrant which was against us. He acquired for us full satisfaction for our sins so that we can appear before God his father in such a way that even death will no longer do as evil or any harm although we still see in us many things which might be shocking and we experience our poverty and misery yet let us not cease to glory in Him. He lowered himself for US in order to raise us with him. In fact although on Man's side there is only complete shame yet when Jesus Christ was hanged there on the cross already God wished at that time by the mouth of pilot that he'd be declared king so although the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus is vilified before the world..

"Newfound love and gratefulness. Just as I did from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour and about the Ninth Hour. Jesus cried with a loud voice saying L. E. L. E. Lama Suffolk Fani. That is to say my God. My God why have you forsaken me? Some of them that stood there when they heard that said this man calls for Elijah in one of them ran and took a sponge and filled it with vinegar in put it on a read in gave it to him to drink. The rest said wait. Let us see whether Elijah will come to save him. Jesus when he cried again with a loud voice yielded up his spirit. Matthew Chapter Twenty seven versus forty five to fifty four when we consider the death and passion of our Lord. Jesus Christ all men have to be humbled and there will be found in men only poverty in shame in order that God may pour out upon them the treasures of his mercy for he has no other consideration to provide for us except when he sees that are in despair. God doesn't show us here. How he extends his hand to those who seem to be worthy of it or who have some merit in them or maybe who were respectable and in general reputation among men but when he draws from the depths of hell poor damned souls and when he shows himself to be pitiful toward those on whom all hope of life had disappeared. That is where his goodness shines. That is also what gives us entrance into salvation for hypocrites. Although they profess to be restrained by the grace of God closed the door against themselves by their arrogance for they are so inflated with pride that they cannot change themselves for our Lord. Jesus Christ so we may be very certain that Jesus Christ calls to himself poor centers in that. He extends his arms to receive them for. If we are not sure of this we will never be able to take courage income to him but when we are persuaded that it is those who are the most miserable that he addresses provided they recognize themselves such and they humbled themselves and render themselves blameworthy as they are before the judgement of God. That is how we will be rescued. That is how we have easy access to share in the righteousness which is offered to us. This is the way we obtain grace and favor before God. From the six hour until the ninth hour there was darkness during which time it said that there was darkness over all the land that is in. Judea for the eclipse was not through all the world in fact that would have obscured the miracle which God wished show because they might then have attributed this eclipse to the order of nature but behold the country of Judea which is covered by darkness into. What our about three hours after twelve. Pm when the sun was nowhere near setting but outside natural cause darkness caused fright and astonishment. All many consider that this was done as a sign of God's discussed as though God wished to call the Pharisees to account so that they might feel the enormous crime that they had committed if we as humans hate murder. How much more deplorable is the murder of the son of God God yet the death of our Lord Jesus did not remain merely a sacrifice of sweet savor for. We must always remember that it was the reconciliation of the world darkness came in order that the Sun could give testimony to the divine and Heavenly Majesty of Our Lord Jesus for that moment he was lowered and rendered contemptible before men emptied of everything as Paul says yet the Sun shows that it does him homage and keeps it hidden God to render the wicked all. The more inexcusable will that Jesus Christ in his death be declared sovereign King of all creation that this triumph of which Paul speaks in the second chapter of Colossians began already when he says that. Jesus Christ triumphed in the Cross Colossians chapter two versus fourteen and fifteen. He tore up the warrant which was against us and acquitted us before God by this Satan was conquered and it can be shown by the eclipse. We are enlightened today by the death and passion of our Lord. Jesus Christ for how is it that the Gospel shows us the way to salvation? How are we enlightened to come to God unless the son of God is presented us with the fruit and power of his death? Indeed Jesus Christ is then the Sun of righteousness because he acquired for us life by dying but his accusers have been deprived of such benefit since by their malice. They had tried to extinguish and abolish everything that could give them hope for. It was entirely in the person of the mediator. The same one. They tried to destroy by their malice and ingratitude. It was quite right then that they were completely destitute of all light of salvation. In order that the wrath of God declared itself in a visible manner upon them it follows that our lord cried out saying my God my God. Why have you taken me Matthew and Mark Recite in the Aramaic Tongue? The words of our Lord which came from Psalm. Twenty two then we must hold it. As a conclusive fact that our Lord Jesus being brought into such extremity and anguish cried with a loud voice yes like those who are tormented to their limits. My God God. Why have you forsaken me? In fact we have set above that it would be a cold statement from the history of his death if we would not consider the which he rendered to goddess. Father this is the principle thing we have to consider when we need to be assured of our salvation. It is that if we have committed many faults in rebellions and iniquities against God. All of it will be buried for our Lord. Jesus by his obedience has justified us in rendered US acceptable to God his father. Now this obedience is shown in that Jesus Christ knowing that it would be hard and terrible obeyed it to the end for. If he had not experienced difficulty or conflict it would not have been obedience but though our Lord Jesus by nature held death in horror and it was a terrible thing to be found before the judgment seat of God in the name of all poor centers did not fail to humble himself to such condemnation for our sakes we see in him. A perfect obedience in that we have a good cause to glorify him as says the apostle in the epistle to the Hebrews our Lord Jesus was heard in that he feared Hebrews chapter five for seven but he had to sustain what was so hard and burdensome and entirely contrary to all human affection it was necessary that God is father so trained him in order that his obedience might be known Hebrews Chapter Five Verse Eight. We see the apostle who says particularly that our Lord. Jesus had to be shaken with fear for without that we would not know what the sacrifice by which we have been. Reconciled is worth in fact saint. Peter also shows that our Lord Jesus suffered not only in his body but in his soul when he says that he fought against the pains of death it is true that scripture will often say that we are redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ in that he offered his body as a sacrifice that is also why it is said that his flesh is to us meet and his blood is to a spiritual drink but that is set out of regard to our simple nece because we are gross the Holy Spirit brings us back to what is visible and the death of Jesus Christ in order that we may have a completely certain pledge of our salvation although he had to sustain great in extreme terrors yet he put our salvation above every other consideration. This is what we have to observe in this passage. That is that the son of God not only endured in his body such a cruel death but that he was touched to the heart having to sustain horrible assaults as if God had abandoned him for he also sustained our cause and he had to experience what condemnation there was upon poor centers by our sins we are alienated from God and he must withdraw himself from us. We must know that he has rejected us. That is the proper thing for sinners. It is certain that Jesus Christ has never been rejected by goddess father. Nevertheless he had to sustain these Soro's and he had to fight valiantly to repulse them in order that today the fruit of the victory may come back to us so we have to remember that when our Lord Jesus was put into such an extreme circumstance as God. His father had cut off from him all hope of life it is as if he was in his sustaining the curse of our sins for whereas our joy unless we are made alive by the grace of God he is the Fountain of life and of everything. Good and our sins put a large distance between him and Us Jesus Christ then had to experience this. Let us consider now what someone might say. Is it possible that Jesus Christ experienced such terrors since there is an him only complete perfection for it seems that it takes away from the faith which he must have had and from everything that we ought to believe of him now? The answer to that is very easy for when he was tempted by Satan. It was certain that he had to have this apprehension that he was actually on top of a tower he was subject to such an illusion according to his human nature however that took nothing away from his divine power rather we have occasion to magnify his goodness toward us as he was willing so to lower himself for our salvation. Now it is said that he cried. My God. Why have you forsaken me? How could one who was God? Have such apprehension? No no but when he suffered his deity had to give place to his death and passion which he had to endure that then is the power of our Lord Jesus which was kept as it were hidden for a time until he had accomplished all that was required for redemption this feeling of terror in no way detracts from the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ for inasmuch as he was man he had all his confidence in God. It was then the true pattern of a true perfect and complete confidence. It is said now that he was in such anguish that he seemed to be forsaken by God is father however his faith was always perfect was neither beaten down nor shaken in any manner. How then does he say? Why have you forsaken me? It is by natural apprehension behold then our Lord Jesus Christ to according to the weakness of his fleshes as it were abandoned by God and yet he does not cease to confide in him as we see two parts in these words which are superficially contrary and yet all agrees very well when he says my God my God and he repeats the word in such a way by that. He shows constancy of his faith. He does not say. Where's God. How could he leave me? But he addresses himself to him..

"He was given a church and started to preach. And this has probably been the end of the story for John Calvin but two big things occurred and his dad ends up being the one changes everything the first is his dad decided. I don't want you to be a priest anymore. I want you to be a lawyer. No one knows for sure why that happened. There's two kind of big explanations. One is. According to the legend. The one that kind of gets passed down a he kind of got into trouble with the Bishop at the time. He gets excommunicated. Gets exiled. And there's evidence that this might have been what happened. And so. He wanted his son out of that line of work. Because of how you sporadic it is and he's upset with the church. Maybe the other side of it too is though he might have been looking at what was happening with the reformation because see the writing on the wall that the church was going to have a big contentious time and then looked over at lawyers dot you know. My son is very very smart. Everyone thinks he's intelligent. Guy Lawyers make a lot of money. Maybe this is just a safer better place for him to be. But either way he sends them out to law school at around the age of nineteen. And we're not sure win. This next part happens but the next part that really changes Kelvin's life and it has to do with his dad. His Dad dies either at one thousand nine hundred thousand three somewhere. Between those years sources varied he dies and this is important because I think up until now you just see anything Calvin stand tells them to do it but after he dies he now no longer has anyone guiding him anymore and I think that helps them start to go. Okay what am I really believe in life and I think as he's doing that among everything else and he no longer has his dad telling them what to do he starts to walk away from the Catholic. Church of this part yeah. He went back to Paris and Hemming. Hughes used incredibly talented incredibly intelligent. The college that he went to impairs the College of Montague I believe it's pronounced Gave them a full ride? Doctorate in his tutors would actually ask him to deliver lectures in class because he was fully capable and even sometimes better equipped to give lectures than the professors themselves were so very well respected. Very well liked enduring. This time. One of his relatives gave him a Bible that was translated and he started going through and reading it and he would compare it to the things that the Catholic Church was teaching at that time he really is at the Catholic. Church was teaching a lot of things that were not from. The Bible did not come from the Bible in. This was something that he wrestled with his own conscious to the point where he stepped away from the church stepped away from being a priest from receiving the allowance that the priesthood gave him in. This was again after ten years of priesthood. So he was. He was in the system as much as anyone could be a so to step away from. That was a pretty big deal was funny to me that he took him ten years. After being a priest for ten years someone finally gives him a Bible. I mean what was he? He was doing sermons and stuff. What was it? He Preaching and talking and teaching about at that point. If you didn't even know what the Bible said so really strange stuff. As he as Joe said as he began to read the scriptures more and more he becomes convinced that the Catholic church is wrong. He grew very zealous passionate about the word of God. And it's interesting to something else. Changed his personality changes. He went from this kind of almost a monk like quiet kid who spends all his time by himself to a man that was making friends. He's becoming well nonni speaking to crowns. He's bold about what he believes and it was like who he was as is being reshaped almost by scripture and the more he reads the Bible the more he becomes John Calvin that we know him to be in history. That's very passionate fiery preacher and eventually this man ends up having to flee Paris under the threat of persecution. He will eventually end up in Geneva. At the age of twenty six he published again. Twenty six very young. He published the famous book institutes of the Christian Religion and from there. He goes on into history to be one of the most famous theologians whether you disagree with them or agree with them all time but you can see how at the age at the age of twenty six. I think that's very young on the one hand but if you listen to all the things that he went through even before then you go. Wow He's already lived a lot of life at that point in the sermon. This guy who wants to live in the heart of the Catholic Church and it was seen as just a genius at his age tells us about the death of Christ on the Cross and the same story that we've heard over and over. This is actually just sermon. Seven and an eight part series. He did but I think you`ll. You'll walk away looking at the Passion of Christ with.

"From history in a sermon that they delivered today's sermon. We are listening to a John. Calvin going back to the fifteen hundreds. This sermon in particular was preached in Geneva Switzerland. Joel this is our second sermon from John. Calvin and I had to say I love this sermon. As soon as I read it. I knew that this sermon needed to be the sermon. That came before Easter Sometimes as Christians I think we hear the passion story and we hear about Jesus on the Cross and it's easy to analyze. Sounds kind of wrong but it's kind of to take it for granted to just. Oh yes okay. I know the Gospel Story for me. I compare it to. I know when the sun comes up. It's going to be a Sunday and I know twenty four hours a day. These things are really important. Obviously if we had a thirty hour day it'd be crazy right but the thing is I take it for granted just a fact of life but the passion story should be more than that should be exciting. It should be something I don't get used to but I've been a Christian for about ten years or more and I get a little where I'm like. Yeah Humdrum about it. This sermon. Just really hit me in a way. I hadn't thought about it in a while. It just came at me from new things and it really made me appreciate Calvin and just how much he must have studied and how much reading. He must have done to be able to take this story. I think I've heard many many times and just I felt in a different way than I had before. And Yeah I think. Hopefully that will be the feeling you get to as you hear that sermon. Yeah John Calvin has mentioned. Is someone that we've already done an episode on previously. This is the second episode from John. Calvin John Calvin was one of our first episodes. We did in that. First ten episodes we will we kinda referred to as the first season here revived thoughts on a side note. We just recorded a kind of behind the MIC patriot. Only podcast where we talked about. What creating the first ten episodes of revived thoughts with was like and the complete train wreck that that it was China. Get these first ten episodes recorded. This was one of the episodes that we had such a problem. Trying to make if your paycheck on the keep an eye out for that episode. Being posted on your patriotic. I if you're not a patriots fan and you're jump in and listen to the if you I think just the day and leave it like this but just the day at the libraries and many many libraries. We'll leave it there just yet but yeah that's a little. That's a little teaser. So yeah it was. It was rough getting the initial John. Calvin episode recorded John Calvin. He's pretty pretty controversial figure And part of his controversy comes from the theology that is named after him. Calvinism and other parts of his controversy comes from the burning of service. There's lots of debate about his life and we covered some of these things in that previous episode. But today we're gonNA focus on some other parts of his life. That aren't talked about as much so one thing that stood out to me that just kind of it just hit me when I was looking at his life. The second time was. How Young Calvin was when this all started. Calvin was born in fifteen o nine if you take a what age Martin. Luther nailed the ninety five theses. The big reformation starting moment he would have been eight or so years old. If you see pictures of Calvin you think of these many think of them as really old name beards and they're just kind of hunched over but Calvin was a kid when the reformation started and and Cowan was not really set on the path to be a part of the reformation and you can see I think how in the story God pulls him into it all in a really interesting way. Kelvin's father Gerard. Calvin was the secretary of a bishop in their hometown neon and he was a successful businessman as father was they were middle-class but in Europe during this time middle-class was was was doing good that was that was the majority of people were in that lower class middle class. Meant you were able to send your kids to school which the vast majority of people who are your kids were learning how to read which the mass of majority wasn't doing at that time. His father was also pretty strict and Calvin grew up tennis shy partially due to his dad. Being so tough on him we think Calvin himself growing up with with talk about going out on these long walks and praying and just being open with with God and talking to God in that when he was young Roman Catholics would do. These parades processions and Kelvin. During one is these parades was allowed to carry a sword during one of these possessions and kind of his personality of his intelligence in his seriousness. At some point his father seeing him fighting with the sword in this parade that switch kind of flicked in his dad's mines says this kid would make a great priest and so he sent him to school to become a priest. I mean that's pretty much how it went and we know that the Catholic Church during this time the early fifteen hundreds they were. They were very corrupt. This was not the best time for the honestly. Yeah and if you've listened to our episode of Wycliffe or gene garrison on or Martin Luther. We've talked about this. Erin just how corrupt things were another sign? That things weren't good was that kids could become ranked church members which I actually didn't know this until this episode. That was something or it would have been mentioned before. But the cardinal of Lorraine was made a cardinal at the age of four. So just imagine you go to church and a four year old is out there in charge of everything and you can get a pretty good idea of how things are running for the church and how serious they're taking things just like that Calvin the chaplain of this little town called glycine quiz and he says hey. I'm GonNa make twelve year old. John Calvin the new guy that new Chapman appoint him to do my job and even though he's only twelve years old and may fifteen twenty one. He becomes the chaplain of that little town. They do a ceremony. They cut his hair short and they say some words and that's pretty much. He's now able to be a priest he can give out holy orders he can give out sacraments. It's really crazy but there was actually something interesting from this and I read. A book was a biography on him from seventeen ninety nine. And it basically said if you think about it. Moses was raised in Pharaoh's palace. Almost like he was raised in the belly of the beast kind of a thing and that gave him insight into how Egypt was run and it kind of made him the perfect guy to break them out of Egypt. The same way Calvin grew up in the priesthood. I mean he was twelve years old he was running this first chaplain chop his dad worked for the bishop's he was he was in the parades he was right there in the heart of Roman Catholicism and because of his knowledge in his his time growing up there he almost the perfect person to explain why. It's wrong he has so much insight into how it all works. There was a plague that broke out in his hometown. Neon there and Gerard was deeply worried that his son Calvin would die. Hundreds were fleeing the city and the people that were dying. Most were priests at the time of this recording the countries in this crisis cove in nineteen crisis and we think of these doctors nurses being on the frontlines fighting that disease at its at its source and obviously we have the utmost respect for those people fighting that on the front line kind of back in this era the priests kind of plead that role. They were the people that were in people's houses. They were comforting people. They were Praying for people and they typically would have some medical knowledge that they would be able to advise in that scenario as well that his father didn't want them in neon because because of this disease going on so he made arrangements for John Calvin to go to Paris to study without losing his allowance. And that kind of just shows a little bit of how corrupt the churches this This piece was able to go to a different city to study for several years and still be the town priest without the priest. Even being there like there's just a lot of facets to imagine your pastor of your local church just says I'm going to go to seminary across the country and then he just continues to take the pay for being the pastor of the Church for several years earlier and I mean again. We have to remember that at this time where he goes study keys. Fourteen maybe fifteen years old. So he's not he's not a we would still consider them to be a child a teenager during this time and this is the same time that that again. That reformation is sparking all across Europe. So we think of Calvin being this huge player in the reformation. Any definitely was but during the early spread of the reformation Again he's probably about fourteen fifteen years old at the time of Guinea studying in Paris and I visited. I was able to to see the Notre Tom Recently and the idea that five hundred years ago people were. The church was executing people by burning them in front of that building. It's very hard to visualize what that must have been like back in that day and from all we can tell lake. John Calvin was had no objections to this. Like he was during this time fully on board with Catholocism in that life owed of a priest in the Catholic Church so he was very against the Protestant movement that was happening at the time. There was actually an about that that there was a bell on top of that every time. A heretic would burn. They would ring the bell so I mean imagine. He's at school or he's doing something there's the bell. I wonder if they burn somebody today. You know what I mean. That's that would have been his relationship with the reformation and kind of a part of him that I think all of us have forgotten or I. I certainly didn't think about it very much.

Is Astrology Antithetical to Christianity?
"College became so popular in the ancient oral and everybody believed that astrology for the most part but he believed or the majority of people believe that astrology was legitimate phenomenon and they also there was a heavy belief in astrology was very intertwined with the concept of fate and predates termination and the idea that astrology would tell you something about your fate and about your future and in some versions of astrology it was much more deter monistic than it is today in the late twentieth early twenty first centuries that things were viewed as much more deterministic or much more fixed when you're looking at your life through the lens of astrology and I feel like that's maybe true to some extent of traditional astrology as well would you say that's like an accurate statement or may be overstating the point I think they would overstate astrology of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance I certainly from my research and reading and in that period read it seems like there is a sense that the charts especially in in terms of charts of questions but also in nativities as well it it was essentially presentation of the path of Least Resistance if you do not do anything these are what your predictions are this is what could happen if you don't any if you don't make any effort to avert a possible disaster but that again that depends based on the particular right her as far as how much of a hardline determinist they're going to be which actually gets really interesting when you get into the Protestant reformation the sixth at the sixteenth century where there is a growing rift between stripes of protestantism with John Calvin and his successors is going very hard in the line of determinism while at the same time repudiating astrology and you have Martin Luther and his right hand man Philip Malang Ben who was an astrologer arguing much more in the direction of more autonomy more free will more synergistic participation with in the in the salvation project so that becomes a really tangled line of inquiry that's not quite so easy to suss out as much as we would probably get to be at least At least the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries by that point in history sure definitely an even in the hellenistic tradition there were certainly practice says like election astrology or you've even applications of Magic to astrology which sought to make things less deterministic or more negotiable in that goes back probably to the mess Petitjean tradition even with the existence of like perpetuation rituals and the idea that there were things you could do to eight or avert your fate or what have you so that certainly existed but at least in the early hellenistic tradition it was also coming out of the backdrop of stoicism being a very popular philosophy from the third century BC to the first few centuries C E and that was like a a cosmological view in which everything in the world everything that would happen in your life was predetermined to happen you know at the very least from the moment of birth there were certainly some astrologers who held like hardliner extreme stoic views like Manila's examples one of the most famous or to a lesser extent invidious Valentine's and others like that so that certainly and that was like my main way of approaching this is just realizing that there was a deterministic a fully deterministic approach to astrology in the Hellenistic period around the time that Christianity arose and that that may have interacted in interesting in sort of weird ways that we don't realize today because astrology is so just not deterministic at this point in time right I think that determinism of any form has become extremely unpopular justin in general culture which you know has has certain ramifications I think the way that we practice astrology today as people whose practices are informed more by classical philosophy by the philosophy entity in the techniques that urged from that philosophical that philosophical period within history so it's certainly something that those of us who are adjacent to the traditional revival the revival of traditional astrology in the West should maybe spend a little bit of time thinking about closely and I'm sure that this is something that most people coming into this strategy at least spend you know thirty minutes on on a lonely night thinking about at least I would hope so thinking about what specifically thinking about the the fuel level of determinism that is baked into strategy. Yeah I mean that 'cause that's always been one of my contention is that NATO astrology the basic premise of natal astrology to some extent is deterministic because in the premises that the alignment of the planets and other slush bodies is at the moment of your birth have something to say about the nature in the course of your life put it like at the most simple basic definition that's always been my basic initiative natal astrology which I don't think anybody would argue but that definition of itself almost as imply that there's something perhaps about your future that might be you might have a preview of at the very least from looking at birth chart rent. Yeah Yeah Yeah the way that I've come to talk about this and I think of chart almost like a piece of sheet music right you give a prelude to three different pianists and they'll all play the same notes in the same rhythms but they'll each have a very different interpretation of the peace and it will sound different and have different and feel based entirely upon the situation the context in which that piece of music is played so you give one to adjust the pianist and you'll get that version you give another to classical pianist you'll get that version you know I think it's very similar with nativities you give one person in a tizzy that has Jupiter in the ten thousand Sagittarius and they become a Hindu Rishi in the that they grow up in India and that's their path but you give that same chart to somebody who grows up in Italy they turned into the pope right it's not the same fate but it is kind of the same theme its variations on similar themes at least that's where I've landed on this one Sure Yeah I mean does that because I think that was so would I noticed in my studies of ancient astrology in ancient philosophies religions was that that seemed to be one of the main points of dispute between astrology and Christianity at least in the ancient world was the issue fate in the issues Predetermination because the logically the idea of of having a free will of sore was really important in Christianity for D aren't reasons right why why is that theologically well it depends on the theological stripe your coming from in some stripes of reform armed with the ideology humans do not have any say whatsoever and whether they're actually saved or not free will is an illusion and this would be the heart health and him exactly a hardline calvinism suggests that God has already decided who will be saved and who will not be saved and there's nothing you can do about it right but that's sort of like a sort of weird but let's say a not common view in terms of Christian theology. and it's not a common view in terms of Christian theology but it is a view that does become significant in the development of late renaissance astrology especially in England because William Lee of course when he's writing he's very involved in the political and religious climate of England during the seventeenth entry and the Stripe of Christianity that is in power during that time it skews towards deterministic calvinism oh that is something that I think enters the picture at a certain point but I don't think it's the majority opinion of of historic Chris Janati for sure historically Christianity has made a strong case that an individual needs to be able to participate with God in their salvation vis-a-vis the exercise of free will choosing to choosing God whatever that means don't get too into specifics or into the weeds here but yeah that exercise of free will is important I think in the classical Christian articulation of how Salvation Works and what the mechanism is but I don't think that it's I'm not quite ready to say that that in and of itself precludes there being some kind of external influence upon bring them to a point where they have the opportunity to exercise that free will
Witches & Saints: Anne Askew
"The eighth are women if the day was a writer poet and Protestant martyr. Let's talk about an ask you not much is known for sure about her early life but it's believed that and ask you it was born around fifteen twenty one and grew up in Lincolnshire England her a father was from an old established family in the region an an was highly educated and intellectually adapt from early on in her life and was a devout out Protestant. The Christian Bible had just become widely available in English and an studied and memorized verses. Some sources say she studied the Public Bible at the Lincoln Cathedral and debated with local clergy an was also one of the earliest known women poets who wrote in English as a quick reminder. Protestant Christianity was growing rapidly across Europe during Ann's lifetime but it wasn't a monolithic movement by any stretch of the imagination King Henry the eighth who had been a devout Catholic split from the Catholic Church after the pope refused to annul his first marriage and started the Anglican Church despite that fact the Anglican Church remained much closer to the beliefs and practices of the Catholic Church than other reform for movements like those led by Martin Luther or John Calvin Christianity which began as a fledgling religion in the first century had grown by the thirteenth eighteenth century into an institution powerful enough to rival state governments in the decade after England's official move away from Catholocism authorities developed developed relatively orthodox criteria for what kinds of Protestant beliefs were allowed in England and condemned the beliefs of more radical reform movements back to an and married a man named Thomas kind. The two had a rocky relationship he he had actually been intended for an older sister but her older sister passed away. Thomas was Catholic so from the beginning he and an clashed over their beliefs chiefs. Perhaps that's why an continued to go by her maiden name which was quite rare at the time. Still the couple had two children together before Thomas Thomas through an out for being a Protestant seems like an was okay with having to leave. She was the first Englishwoman to demand divorce. She then moved to London met other.

It was let thanks to that kindness. Their deaths were much quicker and less painful and was one of just two women on record who were tortured and the Tower of London and burnt at the stake before her death and wrote an account of her beliefs and story it was published as the examinations by John Bale it.

The King James Bible
"D._c. And we're here to talk about the king james bible now. If you were to go rooting through your grandma's attic nick and you were to come across what you thought would be a first printing king james bible. How would you know while you need to do is go to ruth chapter three verse fifteen and see how it ends. If that verse ends with he went into the city you would know that you had an authentic sixteen eighteen eleven first printing bible and by the way it would be worth a mint but if it said she well. That's not a sixteen eleven bible now. We'll get to that in a second. Can what we have here in. The museum of the bible is actually a visual and real representation of the history of the english bible. It begins with tindale in the fifteen twenty s and tindale gave his life to bring the bible into the language of the english people now we know wickliffe and wycliffe was a translation of the latin latin into the english. What we're talking about is translation of the original greek new testament in the hebrew old testament so we start with tindale then we come to fifteen thirty five and we have the coverdale tale bible named for miles covered and it was largely the tindale translation fifteen thirty seven. We have the matthew bible. It was also a tindale associate associate who produced this bibles name was john rogers but he gave himself a pseudonym of thomas mathew and so it's known as the matthew bible then we come to fifteen thirty nine and we have the great bible and it's the great bible because of its size it was meant to be elect turn bible and it is quite a specimen sleman in its size and then we come to the bible of the puritans the geneva bible in the fifteen fifty and fifteen sixty s these were the puritan exiles john calvin geneva and calvin believed that people should work and so these english scholar should work and they worked on an english translation geneva bible first bible with notes and the first english bible with verse sophistication based on a greek testament that was published in fifteen fifty one called the fantas greek taxed and there's a copy of that in the museum of the bible as well when we come to the bishops bible in fifteen sixty eight this was a bit of a response to the geneva bible which sure the puritans and the dissenters anglicans wouldn't be left out so we've got the bishop's bible and then we come to an important date sixteen four king james ames had been office for only a few months by the time we get to february sixteen. Oh four and over the course of three days meetings were held with puritans anglican bishops and the king james overseeing it and one of the decisions that came out of the hampton court conference of sixteen o four was the need for a new translation nation and sure enough seven years later the authorized version authorized because it was authorized by the king himself was published the king king james version and now we get to ruth chapter three verse fifteen and the original the very first printing of this authorized version urgen by the authorized printer in the city of london and you can look right at it because this version here at the museum of the bible was open right to route three fifteen. The ending has that and he went into the city because of the versus sort of a go between with ruth and boaz. They're both subjects. Both of those proper nouns occur in this verse and so what is the pronoun in the sixteen eleven it's he but the realization is in the hebrew manuscripts that were actually discovered between green sixteen eleven and sixteen thirty three that it's she not he that is not a reference to boaz but a reference to ruth so in sixteen thirteen thirteen a printing of the sixteen eleven was done and it's called the great she bible of sixteen thirteen. So how do you know if that treasure treasure you found a grandma's attic is indeed an original first printing sixteen eleven check the ending of route three fifteen and that's the king james version version bible and i'm steve nichols on location at the museum of the bible and thanks for listening to five minutes in church history for more ordination or

"He originally had been zealot for Judaism. But now he was a great defender of truth. A great defender of the grace of God. So when Paul opens his letter to the Corinthians. He says I'm a call the puzzle by the will of God. But also here is SaaS the this are brother and immediately those Christians would realize boy God, it's certainly not a great work in in his life. That was certainly an odd method of evangelism. You beat somebody up and later they come to faith in Jesus Christ in any case sauce. This was a brother who demonstrated the grace and power of God, his name, certainly added weight and credibility to the rest of the letter because the Corinthians knew that he had come to faith in some very unusual circumstances. It all that is something that I see when I go through the bible, God can make some great servants out of sinful people who rebelled against them and come out with some bizarre backgrounds. You may be saying that, hey, I've I've had a bizarre background. I've done some terrible ugly things in life SaaS than us. But look at what happened to him. He came to faith in Jesus Christ and five or six years later. This guy's named in the word of God. God is in control various things God is in control of all kinds of tragedies. And I know of a case in which a wife of a husband got sick with cancer and all the mentally in paying off the bills, the husband had to sell off business and property and homes, and ultimately the wife died, and you would look at that and say, well, why did you why would God allow something like that? Well, in the end in the aftermath of all of this terrible. Negatively, the man trusted Christ the savior, it took all of that. To bring him to that point. I read a sermon by John Calvin called the right use of affliction, and it was his exposition of job thirty six six to fourteen and Calvin said, God uses all to draw us into a closer relationship with him that was sauce Psomas story sauce than this was a proud Jew. He was a defender of Judaism, he got beat up because he was defending Judaism. But that beating humbled him. And eventually he sought out apparently Paul and Paul presented him. The gospel of Jesus Christ sauce than is actually came to faith in Christ turned his back on his Jewish religion. And alternately went onto become a great name in the history of Christianity, perhaps you're suffering affliction right now may I say to you draw close to the Lord he'll see through it watch. What he'll do in the aftermath of this view it as something that God is using to draw you close to himself or the third identification that Paul gives us. In first Corinthians one as Paul identifies God's church verse to to the church of God, which is at Corinth. Now verse two informs us of the recipients of the letter or to whom the letter was written, which of course, was the church. The word cure is a word, which is a combination of two Greek words, which means to call out Paul is writing scripture for those who've been called out into the family of God. Those who are believers the word of God is written for the believer. It's written to the church written for the church. It's to be taught in the churches to be taught to believers. I can't stress that enough. There are some very misguided. People who think the church is supposed to be about just talking to all those who aren't believers that is a bunch of nonsense. The word of God is to be taught to believers..
"john calvin" Discussed on Stuff Mom Never Told You
"Heavy look at my charm bracelet of despair. But of course, that's not reality anymore. I mean as soon as the recession hit I like, we millennials do not expect to be jobs typically more than like five years. Yeah. Well, you know, I mean, you've got the positive and negative side of that. Like, we as a generation want to do the thing that makes us happy. We want to chase down happiness. We're not we don't feel like we need to be loyal to accompany for fifty years. It's not one of our top priorities. Instead, it's us all the time happening into our passions. Caroline, right. Passion, jobs and. Yeah, I mean, we, you know, I was at my first job out of college for four years amid the recession, and I couldn't really leave while that was happening because I know would be able to get a job. But once I did catapulted right out of there. Yeah. I've been at how stuff works going on eight years. So you're almost at that gold Rolodex. Yeah. I've almost got a goal millennial gold Rolodex. And yeah, if my. Job were a child it would be in late elementary school and packing its own lunch. So that's good. Yeah. I mean, oh, mommy got time for that. At least it's a little less hands on. But in addition to the fact that we don't necessarily stick around in one place. We job hop in ways. Like never before. Teleworking also means less face to face communication. Although I do feel like while I interfaced with people all that often in my job because I do telework you and I both telework fairly often. But thanks to slack G chat. And text in texting I think that's what the texting. We are always still communicating. Yeah. Exactly. And one study did show that and this was a huge study that is long as you were in the office at least two and a half days a week and that applies to us. It won't have a negative effect on your work relationships. You know, you'll still have you can still be buddy buddy with people at work. Just maybe not have a work spouse per se. Yeah, I don't think that our work. Boston marriage has suffered from teleworking. No, no, not by any means. You've also got the issue of social media. Allowing us to remain connected with old friends, college, friends, whatever. So perhaps there is less of a drive, especially if you're outworked keeping your head down working for the weekend because you know, that when you get to that weekend, you'll probably be able to visit with friends that you've been able to keep up with on the internet. And I'm wondering with all of this keeping our heads down in working for the weekend. I wouldn't ever accuse the millennial generation of having a Protestant work ethic. Purse. Say, but I mean, we do have lingering aspects of that in order to make it to the vacation to make it to the long holiday weekend, or whatever. And of course, you know, if you're wondering what the Protestant work ethic is and you've been under a rock for hundreds of years at comes from Martin Luther preaching that hard work in any occupation was meaningful duty it was a calling from God. And then John Calvin of Calvinism Calvin Klein, not Calvin Klein. Yeah. John Calvin Klein, but you could argue the John Calvin underwear, we're the original Calvin see original sin. Oh, yes. Calvin argued that people needed to avoid socializing, well working because you've got to put all of your attention and effort into fulfilling God's will through your work. And so, you know, let's gloss overall whole bunch of history and condense a bunch of stuff into a. Simplistic statement, which is basically like white Protestant guys where the what have been the ones in power forever in this country. And they're the ones who are the CEO's of offices. Traditionally, and so you have this ingrained culture of put your head down and get your work done. But what more recent research is finding?.
