I appreciate the change that Max Weber believed that John Calvinâ€™s emphasis on
predestination was important because it stressed radical individualism as one realized that
one was strictly oneâ€™s own in the matter of salvation; and “Working out your own salvation
with God.” Being judge by self is of importance to my faith in God, looking in the mirror
instead of someone other than God to help you in life changes.
John Calvin in France influenced Presbyterian, Some Baptist, Reformed, United Church of Christ; The
Institutes of the Christian Religion, only two sacraments (baptism and Lordâ€™s Supper).
Justification by faith not deeds such as indulgences Original Sin–We inherit Adamâ€™s sin, we
are blinded by our own sin, and our minds are so polluted with sin that we cannot think
straight. A Calvinist church insists more on the majesty and otherness of God, God was
removed from what was natural and human (God is a Spirit). Therefore, those that worship
God worship in spirit and truth. Everything in the services turned on the Word and the
architecture of bareness was itself a sacramental symbol of the gospel message. The pulpit
was placed in the center of the sanctuary and proclaimed that the preaching was the essence
of a system or variety of religious worship. Also, hymns, prayers, scriptural lessons, and the
sermon were implementing. In addition, having communion in which the presence of Jesus
was acknowledged. The presence of Jesus was revealed in the Bible, which was Godâ€™s law
book which brought salvation into the world.
