John Calvin was that acerbic Huguenot having a self-righteous homilectical preaching that human nature is completely corrupt and sinful. There exists an entire host of modern day unsavory elite-and-aloof pejorative preachers who have a fear of human nature. There is a real cesspool of apopletic preachers with their apocalyptic messages aimed at their subservient followers. Sinister ministers of diminutive moral character the likes of Ernest Angley, Jim Bakker, Franklin Graham, John Hagee,  and  Pat Robertson. Philistine “I have sinned my Lord,” Jimmy Swaggart is a modern day opportunist who has built a cult following around a hypocritical ministry of pompous moralizing, fear-mongering, hate, innuendoes, and prejudice. Repulsive Swaggart is a spirit-sucking hypocrite who notoriously built a sham "religion" based on sacrificial petitionary seed faith. Seed faith ---> that rapacious manipulative practice of contemptuously taking money from those who can least afford it. Seed faith ---> that modern day selling of indulgences Martin Luther condemned the Catholic Church for by hanging his Ninety-five Theses to the church door in 1517. Swaggart gives his servile servants seed faith promises of a prosperous life now, and salvation in a life to come by immediately sending him seed faith “donations.”

“Tantum religio potuit suadere malorum,”
“To such heights of evil are men driven by religion.” (Lucretius, 1st Cent BC)

Modern day "seed faith" is a concept first given to Oral Roberts by a Texas preacher named Ewing. It is my understanding that Ewing got an airplane out of the deal. Modern apologists picked up on it and Swaggart and others have used it exclusively since.
