Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

“And lest we should adopt the opinion of the philosophers, that ignorance, which leads us into mistakes, is only an incidental evil, Paul shews that it has its root in the blindness of their heart, by which he intimates that it dwells in their very nature. The first blindness, therefore, which covers the minds of men, is the punishment of original sin; because Adam, after his revolt, was deprived of the true light iof God, in the absence of which there is nothing but fearful darkness.”

John Calvin
