Calvin: a sub-christian reverence?

March 22, 2009

    Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
    -- John 17:3 (NIV)

    It would be the height of absurdity to label ignorance tempered by humility "faith;" for faith consists in the knowledge of God and Christ, not in reverence for the Church.
    ... John Calvin (1509-1564), Institutes of the Christian Religion [1559], iii.2.3 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the source of all true faith.
