Will John Calvin Go To Heaven?

Guess what, kids! Next year we celebrate John Calvin's 500th birthday! John Calvin is the superstar of Presbyterianism. So what do you think? Will Mr. Calvin make it to heaven or will he be in hell?

Here is a educational piece on Calvin's theology of predestination. I found this on an interesting blog, Why Won't God Heal Amputees?

Five hundred years. Wow. That is a long time. I wonder what medicine was like 500 years ago? Or physics? Psychology? I guess that wasn't invented yet. Geology? Biology? A lot has changed all right.

Religion? Oh, we are pretty much at the same place now as we were then.
