While reading the first chapter of Echoes of Eden I ran into a fascinating quote from Calvin about God’s self-revelation in His creation. I tracked down the original context, and thought it would be good to share a portion at length. It’s from the Institutes, which I haven’t read though I must one day. It’s a classic, and apparently not just about predestination, unlike the stereotype!

Through being involved in Bible Colleges for a number of years, I have come across a wide range of attitudes towards the Christian’s involvement with culture and the arts. Allow me to overstate my point a little with some harmless stereotyping. Some students will arrive with hard drives stuffed full of movies and music to ‘share’. Some have no issues with Christians indiscriminately enjoying all the hottest movies and music. Others were raised to reject virtually all culture and arts (even the Narnia series) as sinful, and are unsurprisingly confused with these other Christians. And then there are those who haven’t really thought about the issue at all. They’re often swayed one way or the other almost entirely due to whom they have last spoken with. So what do we do with this situation?
