Calvin: On Men’s Blindness to Faith

When life is turned into death, we must blame men’s evil for it. Besides, we must observe that God himself sometimes blinds the minds of men by depriving them of understanding and judgment; sometimes he does it through Satan and false prophets, whose lies make the people mad; sometimes he does it by his ministers, as when the doctrine of salvation is harmful and even deadly to the hearers. — John Calvin

    That’s precisely why I never listen to ministers … just to be absolutely safe.
