We do not worship John Calvin's god.  But some are going to feel like we do as a result of this move (I think).

More people are aware of the historical fact that apostates & non-Christians have lived and died on this planet without taking Christ up on offer of the shedding of His blood—and they’re probably more aware of that than they are of Calvinist theology.
