funny stuff for theologians…

There are three types of funny… Stuff that is funny because of what is said, stuff that is funny because of how it was said, and funny because of who said it… this one falls into the last category.

“After the reading of Scripture, which I strenuously inculcate, and more than any other … I recommend that the Commentaries of Calvin be read … For I affirm that in the interpretation of the Scriptures Calvin is incomparable, and that his Commentaries are more to be valued than anything that is handed down to us in the writings of the Fathers — so much that I concede to him a certain spirit of prophecy in which he stands distinguished above others, above most, indeed, above all”
-Jacobus Arminius (1560-1609)
