¡Viva la Reformación!
I was raised Lutheran and currently attend a reformed church. I was curious to see which group was most interested in claiming the lofty mantle of the Reformation. Being an heir of the Protestant Work Ethic, I created some T-shirt designs showing the great theologians in the iconic Che Guevara pose.
From today through Reformation Day (Oct. 31, 2013), I'm holding a contest to see which sells better:
Guevara was a lousy revolutionary, despite his inexplicable popularity. But where Che pointed to secular salvation. Calvin and Luther pointed to a real revolution — not only in church and society but in body, mind and spirit.
Whether you're on campus or at church, lifting a tankard or planting some TULIPs, visiting Geneva or Wittenburg, let the world know which reformer is your favorite, Martin Luther or John Calvin! I will tabulate the sales week by week to see the "votes."
Share the contest far and wide — I'll keep you updated on the scores and will reveal the winner immediately after Reformation Day on Nov. 1, 2013.
