Alex (alexhumphrey) | 24 comments One thing the Institutes does is reassure me that people are basically the same throughout all of time.

Calvin is dealing with the same things I deal with. The same objections to God, the Trinity, Angels, etc. His wisdom and view of scripture is just as valuable today as it was when Calvin first wrote it!

Clas Jönsson | 11 comments I do agree to some point. However his reasoning around the reliability of the Scriptures is different than today. Today there is plenty of historical facts that more or less prove the resurrection of Christ. That is an excellent resource for us today. However Calvin does give us a good reminder that the Scriptures prove themselves since it's God's word.
