Years later after failing to find a church to pastor in American, Britain, and Australia, he became a recluse, along with his wife, Vera.

Derek Rishmawy made the important point that if we go for a lowest-common-denominator ecumenism in order to get together with Rome or Constantinople, we need to figure out what to make of the more liberal post-evangelical crowd. In contrast, infralapsarians hold that God planned the race to fall logically prior to the decision to save or damn any individuals because, it is argued, in order to be "saved", one must first need to be saved from something and therefore the decree of the Fall must precede predestination to salvation or damnation.

Over the next few hundred years, persecution of "heretic" sects such as the Waldensians and Huguenots (many of whom shared ideas common in Protestant thought today) was considered necessary.
