CALVIN ON THE WEEKLY CHRISTIAN SABBATH
Calvin then further explains: "Religious meetings are enjoined us by the Word of God. Their necessity, experience itself sufficiently demonstrates. But unless these meetings are stated, and have fixed[!] days allotted to them how can they be held? We must, as the Apostle expresses it, do all things decently and in order. I Cor. 14:40 [cf. 16:1-2]. So impossible, however, would it be to preserve decency and order without this politic arrangement that the dissolution of it would instantly lead to the disturbance and ruin of the Church."
