Freedom to Love

January 8th, 2007

John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, III:19.12 (Battles)

We have due control over our freedom if it makes no difference to us to restrict it when it is fruitful to do so. (…) …it is the part of a godly man to realize that free power in outward matters has been given him in order that he may be the more ready for all the duties of love.
