A Splendid Theatre

Tony Reinke has a starbucks cup from John Calvin:
"In the cross of Christ, as in a splendid theatre, the incomparable goodness of God is set before the whole world. The glory of God shines, indeed, in all creatures on high and below, but never more brightly than in the cross, in which there was a wonderful change of things - the condemnation of all men was manifested, sin blotted out, salvation restored to men; in short, the whole world was renewed and all things restored to order."


  1. so Dave - you reckon you were predestined to get that cup? ;o)

  2. Funny. So much more to Calvin than that word, thankfully :)
