Both theologies from Luther and Calvin are different and similar. Each of them are within the new Protestant paradigm, Luther's theology is with the individual person who is justified by faith, and for which such a person, good works naturally flow. Calvin's theology contrasts the glory of God with the depravity of man, and is more skeptical of the ability of the justified man to perform good works. Similarities in there Reformation essentials are more influential then their differences. Calvin was given the Reforming baton from Luther and his theology was created from Luther's. Both these men were used by God to restore the Gospel to His church [ 14 ] .
