Calvin on the Evils of Roman Catholic WorshipPosted: July 15, 2015
Calvin on the evils of Roman Catholic worship and the remedy for the idolatry of having images in worship. He writes,
But, besides the clear testimonies which are everywhere met with in Scripture, we are also supported by the authority of the ancient Church. All the writers of a purer age describe the abuse of images among the Gentiles as not differing from what is seen in the world in the present day; and their observations on the subject are not less applicable to the present age than to the persons whom they then censured.
