Calvin: Haunted By Transcendence

“At this point we ought to note that, however much they struggle against their own senses, and wish not only to drive God thence but also to destroy him in heaven, their stupidity [!!] never increases to the point where God does not at times bring them back to his judgment seat.” -John Calvin

BTW NOTE: I quote this from Calvin, simply because it reminded me of Charles Taylor’s comment that the secular world is haunted by transcendence. In this quote, we see that Calvin was saying that long before Taylor.
