Pithy gems from John Calvin #1

   ~  ~  ~  ~

Man's heart, so to speak, is a perpetual factory of idols!
 
   ~  ~  ~  ~

When the Bible speaks God speaks!
 
   ~  ~  ~  ~

Nothing, including human suffering, happens by chance.
 
   ~  ~  ~  ~

No one will calmly and quietly submit to bear the cross except those who have learned to seek their happiness beyond this world!
 
   ~  ~  ~  ~

Without the fear of God men do not even observe justice among themselves!
 
   ~  ~  ~  ~

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!
