I look at timeline/chronology, where Reformation genesis Martin Luther upends the Catholic Inquisition over Indulgences (money buys your way to God).   

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Luther

*

The Great Protestant Reformation went hand in hand with the post-Medieval & successor Modern Renaissance, essentially facilitated by Gutenberg’s printing press.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renaissance#Religion

*

As with early Church father Augustine, who is equidistant in time (vs. us today) with acolyte gravitas Aquinas 800 years later, so we today are 800 years after Aquinas (1200 AD) —

*

Augustine was a product of his cherry picker Gentile Christian times who implored & exhorted his brethren of Old Testament wrath (essentially power & control of a spiritual realm).

*

Similarly then, both Augustine & Calvin were products of their times separated by a millennium who simply steadied the ship of Faith to avert it sinking into the abyss of Iniquity a la “pick & choose” convenient Gentile Christianity.

*

*

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquinas

*

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamartiology     (Iniquity)

*

*

*

The Word is Jesus, and Jesus is the Word, of course with Prompting of the Spirit at God’s Command.    No Prompt of the Spirit, no Feel for the meaning & import of the Word, and thus no comprehension of the Word.    No comprehension of the Word, no release from Iniquity.

*

In praise of mystic Christian Joanne Silva:  “I recognized that our seminaries could teach us how to think and even how to apply the truths of Scriptures to certain situations, but our seminaries did not have the ability nor the capacity to teach their young ministers how to feel. Only the Prompt of the Spirit could provide that.”   — James H. Hill, Jr.

*

*

To our early Church fathers’ credit (e.g. Augustine),  late Roman Empire’s disintegrating & unraveling demise triggered Rome’s total turn-around to adopt Christianity instead of repressing Christianity.    Rome’s eventual collapse which resulted in the Medieval period/Middle Ages accentuated the Vatican’s eventual coalescence of power which surpassed those of other neighboring nation-states.    But such hardening of the arteries of Papal power also eventually led to Martin Luther’s Reformation in Germany vs. the Pope.   Protestants dominate Germany above Frankfurt, Catholics dominate Germany below Frankfurt.

*

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_Ages

*

French-Swiss John Calvin reacted against Martin Luther in more conservative terrains far south of Frankfurt’s latitude.       John Calvin was 26 years younger than Martin Luther, and for the most part Calvin was the “yang” to Luther’s “yin,” so to speak.    

*

*

Shakespeare actually is a product of Martin Luther’s Reformation, with Grace & Mercy “full of redemption” replete thruout Shakespeare’s Morality Plays.   

*

Word out, so to speak, Shakespeare plagiarized Scripture thru and thru, Daddy-O!     No Scripture, No Shakespeare!     Remember that just 30 yrs. before Shakespeare was born, Latin to English Bible translator  William Tyndale was burned at the stake by the Papacy for making the Bible readable by the English commoners.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Tyndale

*

*

*

*

No matter the rather undeserved propping up of Shakespeare on the backs of  our Gospel Authors.     Kudos to Shakespeare for Shakespeare’s own search for the mystery and the Truth of Jesus!

*

*

Which, by the way, says a lot about shunned predestination pariah John Calvin, who is Shakespeare’s total opposite on salvation.    Looking at the frayed Calvin proselyting about Man’s venality & depravity amid predecessor reformer Martin Luther’s Reformation in the north latitudes, one easily accepts Calvin’s admonition about the evil of Ego/overpride as our worst affliction/contagion.     Calvin correctly says that the best Man can hope for is a release from Hell’s Iniquity by choosing Jesus as our Lord & Savior.

*

*

Has anything changed from early Church father Augustine to intellectual Aquinas (Summa Theologica) 800 years after Augustine, to us today 800 years after Aquinas???

*

No, not in our own mental/intellectual gymnastics/tortuous rationalizations on predestination vs. free will.    And certainly not in our innate venal toxic nature.    We are as detestable today as we were when we crucified Jesus in the mob hysteria of those 6 days 2000 years ago.   Imagine, we sing Hosanna, even the stones shout Hosanna, as Jesus marches into Jerusalem on a donkey’s colt.   And no later than you can bat an eyelash, we crucify Jesus because Jesus cleans out the temple of everything evil about us.     No, we are no better today than that week when Jesus died for our sins.    Like I say, John Calvin has something here, baby!!        😉
