But the theological debate remains, flaring anew this year with Halloween... The reaction of Utah's Christian leaders to sharing the Sabbath with Halloween range from righteous alarm and calls to either avoid celebrating Halloween or substitute church-sponsored celebrations, to calls for tolerance. For the Rev. Terry Long of Salt Lake City's Calvary Chapel, scripture is clear: Witchcraft... is off-limits to Christians. "Exodus 22:18 reads, 'You shall not permit a sorceress to live.'... " Long said. [Long's statement is consistent with national Calvary policy of persecuting minority religious groups.]

In 1965 Church Smith, an independent Pentecostal minister, accepted the call to pastor a small independent congregation, Calvary, in Costa Mesa, California. The congregation had just begun to grow when 'hippies' began to invade the beach front near Costa Mesa. His work among the hippies led to the development of a series of 'houses' throughout the communities in greater Los Angeles where youthful converts could gather. Sunda services were held at the congregations' biulding in Costa Mesa, and the church became famous as a center of the 'Jesus People Revival' that moved across the U.S. in the early 1970s. As membership grew in the Los Angeles area, other Calvary Chapels were established in different communities. As the fame of Calvary Chapel grew, individuals who had visited the church began congregations modeled upon it across America. Membership: Not reported. "

"Reformed, Presbyterians, Calvinists. Known in continental Europe as Reformed churches and under John Knox in Scotland as Presbyterianism, the movement was sparked by John Calvin (1509-64) in France. In a restricted sense, Calvinism was based on Calvin's extreme form of predestination... which held that individuals were destined by God, even before the Creation, to be saved or damned according to His plan... In France, they set up what amounted to a theocracy, and Calvin used excommunication and execution to silence his opponents. "

The Five Points of Calvinism which were drawn up in response to ARMINIANISM are: (1) total depravity; (2) unconditional election; (3) limited atonement; (4) irresistible grace; (5) perseverance of the saints. PRESBYTERIANS, various REFORMED Churches, and ANGLICANS have been strongly influenced by Calvinism as a theological system. "

"The name Camisards was given to the Calvinist peasantry of the Cevennes and Bas-Languedoc regions of southern France, who at the beginning of the 18th century waged partisan warfare against the armies of Louis XIV. The word Camisard derives from camisa, meaning 'shirt' in the local dialect. It has been suggested that the Camisards may have changed their shirts frequently, to symbolize purity... The men would take up arms to attack a Catholic village or castle... The revolt of the Camisards broke out on the night of 24 July 1702... it is likely that the number involved never exceeded 4,000, or the number under arms at any one time 1,500. But these small, temporary units were supported by a population of some 200,000... "
