Well, let's see...
I started learning French from Grade 3.
In Ontario, high school (at the time) went to Grade 13.
I took French all the way to Grade 12, and only dropped Grade 13 because the teacher was a jerk.
Congrats. Canadian French is much different than 15 century European French. I am skeptical that you could translate it even given your extensive background.
I didn't "dismiss" it, I simply recognized it as a secondary source.
As a scholar, I prefer working with primary sources.
You're not working with a primary French source for Calvin.
Thank you for the personal attack.
You will have to answer to God for that.
Yeah. Everything is a personal attack unless you do it yourself.
You simply don't know what you're talking about.
I'm tempted to put forth the effort to see if what you quoted actually originated in French or not......
Either way, You don't use an English translation of the Bible as your primary source. You prefer the ancient texts. Don't try to wiggle out on this....
