Calvin on Worship

In his discussion of Leviticus 10:1, Calvin comments9 on “how greatly God abominates all the sins whereby purity of religion is corrupted….   It was a…transgression to use strange fire…in a different way from that which God had prescribed….   Let us learn, therefore, so to attend to God’s command — as not to corrupt His worship by any strange inventions!”

Indeed, on Leviticus 22:32 Calvin adds:10 “Whatever fancies men devise, are so many profanations of God’s Name.   For although the superstitious may themselves please [them] by their imaginations — yet is all their religion full of sacrilege!”
