Greetings Dave,

No your comparison between Calvin and the apostle Paul is not valid for this discussion.

I'll agree that if this alleged "Calvin sanctioning the burning of Servetus" occurred BEFORE Calvin wrote his doctrine and then Calvin repented his actions and received his doctrine from the Holy Spirit, your point would then be valid. That is not the sequence of events with Calvin, but certainly was the case with the apostle Paul.

I hope I have explained to your satisfaction.
