Calvin’s Explanation of the ‘Nones’

Calvini_Opera_OmniaThese … are the mighty works of the Lord, perfected to his desires, and so wisely perfected that, when the angelic and human creation had sinned, that is had done not what God willed but what it itself willed, even through the same creaturely will by which was done what the Creator did not wish, he fulfilled what he willed, as the supreme good using even evil deeds well, for the damnation of those whom he justly predestined to punishment, and for the salvation of those whom he graciously predestined to grace. As regards themselves, they did what God did not will; as regards God’s omnipotence, they were by no means able to prevail against it. In this itself they did what was against the will of God; yet through them God’s will was done. — John Calvin

    Does it matter if you’re Calvin or a None?
    In either case, God’s Will is Done.
