For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

John Calvin On Penal Substitution

My tribute to John Calvin on his birthday today:

Opposing Calvin’s Inconsistency On The Cross, The Father’s Anger Toward The Son, And The Heart Of The Gospel

In this essay, I attempt to show the following:

1. How both Calvin and Bavinck contradicted themselves on penal substitution

2. How God's Word and Reformed Confessions disagree with their false statements on penal substitution

3. How Calvin himself denied his false statement on penal substitution throughout his sermons and commentaries

4. And finally, how I totally agree with what both Calvin and Bavinck were trying to guard and preserve: the fact that the Father never stopped loving the Son while He was on the cross and that the ontological Trinity remained intact – the intratrinitarian relationship between the Father and the Son was never broken apart.

I invite any feedback! Thanks!
