In the post linked below, originally published October 31, 2012, John Piper explains the significant of this phrase -associated most closely with John Calvin – to Reformation history.

Can John Piper not recognize the similarity of our time to Calvin’s?

Has not the gospel of grace once again become encrusted with the traditions of men?  Is darkness not reigning over the church, and does this not explain why darkness is reigning over society?

Why doesn’t the 21st-century John want to be more like the 16th-century John?
