Are you really a Calvinist? part 5

2 Apr

“Today the poor get nothing more of alms than if they were  cast into the sea.

Therefore, the church is mocked with a false diaconate . . . there is nothing

of the care of the poor, nothing of that whole function which the deacons

once performed.”  

John Calvin

(Because I couldn’t really stop at four, could I now?)
