Calvin on Creation

With no false modesty, Calvin truly declared: “We have thrown more light upon the Scriptures, than all the doctors who have appeared under the papacy since its commencement.”18 This means from about 600 A.D. onward, almost two centuries after the death of Augustine.

In this way, Calvin rejected the stagnant hermeneutic of Romanized Platonism and Aristotelianism.   Instead, he linked up with the pre-papal (historic-prophetic-patristic) creational hermeneutic of the six-divine-days’ formationists from Adam to Augustine.   Said Calvin:19 “It is of importance to attend to the history of creation as briefly recorded by Moses – and afterward more copiously illustrated by pious writers, more especially by Basil and Ambrose.”
