Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

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.
