I read about him and his connection of the term "Gaotu"
In answer to your question, I do not know if he is guilty of Blasphemy. I have said before, only God knows absolutely. Calvins lecture on Psalm 19
seems to be the source of the term "Gaotu". That is his view. So What? He is fallible. His writings are too. Otherwise, I would still be in the
Catholic church agreeing to call the pope the "holy father", and taking his pronouncements as infallible and as from God. Nope. I trust only what
God reveals to me in the bible. Now to the Psalm he gets his "inspiration" from, lets look-
"The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth."
Where in this does it give the almighty true God the title "Great Architect of the universe"? Did that come from God or John Calvin? I don't see it
here, so it must have come from him. Why should I listen to John Calvin? Is he like the pope to you and infalliable? Does this scripture Justify
taking the true God and linking him to all the other nations "Gods" funder the acronym GAOTU? The masons came up with the system of being able to
become brothers with everybody in the whole world, and thier religious beliefs, in the view of being tolerant and accepting, in order to make a group
worldwide. On the surface, good intentions. You even say it is not a religion, although it has all the elements of religion. To me, if you have a
alter, and candles, and robes, and "sacred" books on it, and rituals. If it walks like a duck................ And you can worship with people whos
religion outlines your destruction if you do not sumit to allah, or worse a God who really turns out to be Satan on the ohter side, have fun with it.
I am staying out of it. Thats between you and God. Peace
