Calvin on Islam

      Yet Dr. John Calvin nevertheless did not hesitate to brand Mohammad — as a false-prophet.  For in Deuteronomy 13:1-8, God warned His People: “If there arise among you a ‘prophet’ or a ‘dreamer of dreams’…, you shall not hearken to the words of that ‘prophet’ or that ‘dreamer of dreams’….   And that ‘prophet’ or that ‘dreamer of dreams’ shall be put to death.”   This, Calvin applies among others also to the founder of Islam (whom he regarded as a  false-prophet).
