Calvin on Islam

     In a sermon on Second Timothy 1:3, Calvin explained:31 "The Turks at this day, can allege and say for themselves: 'We serve God from our ancestors!'  …  It is a good while ago since Mahomet gave them the cup of his devilish dreams to drink, and they got drunk with them.   It is about a thousand years since those cursed hellhounds were made drunk with  their follies….   Let us be wise and discreet!….   For otherwise, we shall be like the Turks and Heathen!"
