Calvin Quote

The secret plan of God, which lay hidden, is brought to light - when the Gospel is embraced___

... such as "you shall not suffer a witch to live."

or some of my favorites:

However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.

When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.

Note also that any one of his possessions which a man vows as doomed to the Lord, whether it is a human being or an animal, or a hereditary field, shall be neither sold nor ransomed; everything that is thus doomed becomes most sacred to the Lord. All human beings that are doomed lose the right to be redeemed; they must be put to death.

G.E. & Beam

So, that is what Calvin had in mind by that quote? I wonder why he stuck it in the section of the Institutes that deals with election. Go figger.
