Calvin’s wrong here, isn’t he? Rules are meant for all people. Some just don’t follow the rules. One could make the case that rules are only for large, mean people who want to do what they want to do!
Unfortunately, many people think of Christianity in terms of RULES. And we who are followers of Jesus haven’t helped matters much. We talk mostly about the things we DON’T do, rather than about our RELATIONSHIP with the God of the universe. And that’s just sad.
Someone has defined freedom not as the license to do what I want, but the power to do what I should. I like that definition. And I think Jesus does too.
