In Godfather II Frank Pentangele says this to Michael Corleone:

"Your father did business with Hyman Roth,
your father respected Hyman Roth,
but your father never trusted Hyman Roth."

It occurred to me one might say the same thing with regard to John Calvin's attitude to God:

John Calvin did business with God,
John Calvin respected God,
but John Calvin never trusted God.

Many angry Christians don't seem to trust God either. They want hellfire and brimstone NOW and want to be able to direct the shots. I really wish real Christians would take back their churches.

Amen! I really suspect that the doctrines on hell are to the Christian Revolution what Stalin was to the Russian Revolution: the old dispensation of tyranny and deceit.
