At the time of the Reformation, some persons who
claimed to be Reformed pretended to be Roman Catholic, attending mass and
giving their Romanist neighbours no reason to think that they were
Reformed. Calvin addressed this behaviour, calling on these people
(Nicodemites), if they believed in Christ, to make a public confession of
their faith, rather than dissembling for the purpose of keeping their
status in society. He called them to separation from a false church.
There are many Nicodemites today—people who profess to hold
the biblical and Reformed faith—in departing churches. The
call of the Word of God, Calvin, and the Reformed creeds (Belgic
28-29) is the same: "Come out of her, my
people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye
receive not of her plagues" (Rev 18:4)! Few today
dare to read and fewer still dare to practice, the great
Reformer's scriptural teaching and exhortation concerning
membership in a faithful, Christ-honouring church.
