Calvinism gives depth to the mystery of the fact that our God is wounded God. There is no pretense in Him and His sacrificial love is brutally genuine for us. For the kind of God to love our kind of created species, it takes that much price to pay - the scars on Himself tell all. How could it be that the glory-perfect Almighty God bears scars on Himself for all eternity? For whose sake? No wonder even angels are wonder-struck.

Calvinism testifies to us the assurance that God's good plan cannot be detoured or frustrated no matter what Satan, demons or humans do. We are living in a world where the prominent design overrules everything, never in a chaos or purposelessness no matter what happens or how it looks. Though the Creator Almighty God suffered the heaviest blows and had to pay the ultimate sacrifice Himself and bear the scars eternally as the consequence of choosing to love mankind, He is not surprised by anything.

Calvinism is acknowledging the sovereignty of God who is holy, loving and just, as His creatures should.
