Calvin Versus Idolatry

"‘Guard yourselves from idols!’ [First John 5:21]….   The Apostle not only condemns idolatry — but commands us to beware of all images [also of a Person of the Triune God]….  

– 2 –

"By this, he signifies that the worship of God cannot be kept sound and pure when men begin to desire images….   The Apostle is speaking not only of statues but also of altars — and comprehends all the instruments of superstitions….   We should be so careful to remain in the spiritual worship of God, as to banish far from us everything that may turn us aside to gross and carnal superstitions!"   Anglicans and Evanjellyfish — both, note well!
