Calvin on Islam

     “When the Turks set their Mahomet in the place of God’s Son — knowing not that God has manifested Himself in the flesh (which is one of the chief articles of our Faith) – what a dealing is it? …    How many things soever men term by the Name of ‘God’ — they be but devils of their  

own devising and setting up, if they keep not themselves fast enclosed within the bounds of the Holy Scripture!    

     “And therefore let us mark well, that we must hold us to the Pure Religion….   An hypocrite that would devise a new religion, as it were to set up a [Romish] Popedom…or to bring in the Al- Coran of Mahomet — such a one ought  now  to be put to death, without forbearing.   For so has God ordained!”2
