Created to Know the Majesty of Our Creator

“You cannot find a man anywhere, however uncivilised or wild, who is without some idea of religion. This is because we have all been created to know the majesty of our Creator and, in knowing it, to think more highly of it than anything else. We are to honour it with all awe, love, and reverence.”

– John Calvin, Truth for All Time, p.1

An Affair of the Heart

“Doctrine is not an affair of the tongue, but of the life; is not apprehended by the intellect and memory merely, like other branches of learning; but it is received only when it possesses the whole soul, and finds its seat and habitation in the inmost recesses of the heart.”

– John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, Book Three, Chapter 4, p.447
