Thanks so much Scot. I appreciate the information you share about Calvin´s social activism and also the reminder not to forget to take historical, cultural, etc. context into account. I was also not aware of what the “new calvinism” folks had to say about Calvin himself. Thanks again.
That said, I feel like whatever Calvin was saying about prayer was overshadowed by how his writing came across to me and how he seemed to be enforcing some sort of model everyone must follow when they pray. I believe I can bring my prayers before the throne of God in any myriad of ways and in any emotional state I find myself in. I don´t think Calvin supports such a notion, hence the reason I really struggled with this reading assignment.
