SUMMARY: Renown appears to relate to the NAME of Christ (men of the NAME). In tribulation the church makes a name for itself that is a false Christ and becomes famous by obtaining praise exalting itself above the people of God. And on the salvation side, when the Elect are called out of Babylon, The name of Christ is once again in view as GOD obtains praise and fame.
