To the Reformed tradition Nevin "recovered the older Calvinist regard for the church as a mediator of divine grace. Consider the verse, "For every high priest taken from among men, is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins." Calvin could more calmly contemplate the frightfulness of God’s judgments because they would not descend upon the elect. The only recourse is for the Calvinist to say that faith is a gift in Calvinism, but not in Arminianism, because God does the believing for us (which most Calvinists are quick to say is *not* what they mean), or to say that a gift can only be a gift if it is given irresistibly, which is totally contrived.

The Injunctions of 1538 not only urged priest to educate their flocks and to keep efficient parish registers, but also commanded the destruction of "superstitious" images. It reads: Now I mean this, that each one of you is saying, "I am of Paul," and "I of Apollos," and "I of Peter," and "I of Christ ." But out of the ruins, a new vitality and integrity will rise. He would be succeeded as leader of the rebellion by his son Maurice of Nassau, Prince of Orange. And he is right that this will require extraordinary courage and really daring imagination; I hope he would agree with me that it will, however, require absolutely no compromise of truth.

Compromise reached at Peace of Augsburg in 1555. A father would not kick his son out, so God will not kick us out. Our sources overwhelmingly mediate the reactions and impact of the protestant reformation at the popular level to us through the writings and testimony of their elders and betters. So they fall into a fatalistic mindset�whatever God wills, it shall be done! Central to the debt or satisfaction theory of atonement is the concept of “necessity.” This necessity is akin to the impersonal Fate (Gr. anangke) that governed pagan gods.

Swiss cities were either independent or heading in that direction. We will see in our study of Limited Atonement that Calvinism presents a false gospel. If everyone else has erred or is capable of erring, how can the Protestant reformers be so audacious to claim they have not erred? In the nineteenth century the Scottish Episcopal Church experimented with the use of the term “Reformed Catholic” but abandoned it for “Protestant Episcopal.” “Reformed Catholic was too closely associated in the minds of the Scots with “Roman Catholic.” In our time the late Peter Toon championed the use of the term “Reformed Catholic” instead of Protestant in an attempt to accommodate Anglo-Catholics.

They say that the teaching that man can believe on or reject Christ means that one believes that the sinner is not truly depraved and that man is a "free moral agent." Zwingli, on the other hand, understood "This is my body" to mean "This signifies my body."
