O LORD, who for our sake didst fast forty days and forty nights; Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey thy godly motions in righteousness, and true holiness, to thy honour and glory, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Was Calvin a Calvinist?:: Westminster Seminary California

Calvinism is apparently just a generic term. Reformed theology is a disparate, fragmented tradition, much like Evangelicalism. Unfortunately, some modern neo-Kuyperian Calvinists think that only Cornelius Van Til legitimately represents "Calvinism". Richard Muller seems to suggest that Amyraldianism is legitimately part of the "Reformed" tradition. The fact is Amyraldianism is a departure from the Synod of Dort.

Interestingly, Muller teaches at Calvin Seminary, which endorses the three points of common grace, which is also a form of the "Calvinists" against Calvin argument. Surely Calvin would have agreed to compromise with the semi-Arminianism of Kuyper and Bavinck? Calvin Seminary also endorses theistic evolution and increasingly supports more study on the issue of homosexuality, code for their exaltation of modernist views and general revelation above the special revelation of Holy Scripture.
