Short pithy quotes from John Calvin
- The secret things of God are not to be scrutinized. Those things which He has revealed are not to be overlooked. “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.” Deuteronomy 29:29.
- When God wants to judge a nation, He gives them wicked rulers!
- God preordained, for His own glory and the display of His attributes of mercy and justice–a part of the human race, without any merit of their own, to eternal salvation; and the other part, in just punishment of their sin, He has preordained to eternal damnation.
- I have given up all for Christ–and what have I found? I have more than all in Christ!
