    I have not had many Calvinist friends in my life (although of late I have a few) and I have heard this said in nearly every place I have ever been, Usually from the elderly who suffer from a great many physical ailings.

    To try to tie this belief to the above statement is purely dishonest and very childish. The point in making such statements (above) is not a gnostic belief in separation from the material and the spiritual but simply a looking forward to being free from the sufferings of this world.

    I disagree with much of Calvinism but we need to have more integrity in our criticism.
