Calvin: a sub-christian reverence?

Wednesday, April 3, 2019
    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), The Institutes of the Christian Religion, v. I [1559], tr. John Allen, Presbyterian Board of Publication and Sabbath-School Work, 1921, III.ii.3, p. 491 (see the book)
    See also John 17:3; Prov. 2:6; Rom. 3:22; Eph. 1:15-23; Jude 1:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the source of all true faith.
