Short pithy gems from John Calvin!
1. Man’s heart, so to speak, is a perpetual factory of idols!
2. When the Bible speaks–God speaks!
3. Nothing, including human suffering, happens by chance.
4. No one will calmly and quietly submit to bear the cross–except those who have learned to seek their happiness beyond this world!
5. Without the fear of God–men do not even observe justice among themselves!
6. The human heart has so many crannies where vanity hides, so many holes where falsehood works, and is so decked out with deceiving hypocrisy–that it often dupes itself!
