Quotes to Consider:

John Calvin: "When a man sees good meat ready for his meal, and knows that he may take good sustenance of it, and yet will go his way from the table, and seek dung and filth to feed on, is he not worthy to be poisoned? Even so is it with all such as are not contented with the pure doctrine of God’s Law and Gospel" (Sermons on Galatians, p. 552).

John Calvin: "When the Gospel is preached, then Jesus Christ is painted out lively, and we must look upon him, not with the fleshly eyes of our bodies, but with the spiritual eyes of our faith. Then seeing it is so, let us learn that we have no need of images and puppets to teach us what is necessary for our salvation" (Sermons on Galatians, p. 320).
