Vote John Calvin by Rommel13 Vote John Calvin by Rommel13
A satire of the famous Obama posters. Done completely in Photoshop with the pen tool and rotoscoping one of the more famous paintings of John Calvin.

EDIT: Various forms of this artwork can now be found at an online store I created. [link]

You've got my vote.

(Though that is a very unCalvinist thing to say.)

As a Calvinist myself, I like it! It isn't really overly insulting, it is just stating what we are rather then 'correcting it' in a sense that you are belittling it. So while it is a joke in the sense, it is one we can laugh at ourselves.

"What is choice yet something that is predetermined by your past which you cannot choose?" (quoting myself fyi)

Yeah my Calvinist friend loved it. He even (with my permission) set it as his avatar at his various blogs.

So do you watch a lot of James White, or read John MacArthur and John Piper?

Can't say I do, more of the thinker type then the research/learner type (even though I do like to research/learn, I'd say I do more actual thinking about what I read/learn then actual reading or learning), however, since I am not purely based on my own thinking, (of course, one without the other is pointless, learning without thinking is a robot and thinking without learning... you'd know nothing) I will take the time to read up on those you mentioned.

So thanks for the names, will look them up, see what those guys are about.
