JOHN CALVIN AND THE LIBERTINES

There is a saying that “history always repeats itself.”  Keeping this in mind and reflecting upon the situation between the DUP and the Pink Presbyterians, we ask ourselves if such  a situation has occurred before in history?

Calvin defies the Libertines

The answer is yes, a similar situation did arise during the life of John Calvin. He was called to safeguard the liberty and purity of the Church from the licentious behaviour of the libertines.

John  Calvin and the Libertines can be researched by many good online sources.

As the Bible says, “there is nothing new under the sun.”

Ecclesiastes 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
