On Shunning the Unlawful Rites of the Ungodly by John Calvin

 

Herein Calvin maintains the sinfulness of outward conformity to false worship. Dealing with a major problem of his day, Calvin shows that false worship should never be tolerated or participated in (even by your bodily presence), no matter what the cost -- whether it be persecution, exile, or death.

CALVIN ON SEPARATION FROM FALSE WORSHIP (i.e. worship not based on the second commandment or what is now called the regulative principle of worship) AND WORSHIPPING PRIVATELY (IN YOUR HOME)

"Some one will therefore ask me what counsel I would like to give to a believer who thus dwells in some Egypt or Babylon where he may not worship God purely, but is forced by the common practice to accommodate himself to bad things. The first advice would be to leave [i.e. relocate--GB] if he could. . . . If someone has no way to depart, I would counsel him to consider whether it would be possible for him to abstain from all idolatry in order to preserve himself pure and spotless toward God in both body and soul. Then let him worship God in private (at home--ed.), praying him to restore his poor church to its right estate.

- John Calvin, Come Out From Among Them, The Anti-Nicodemite Writings of John Calvin, Protestant Heritage Press, "A Short Teatise," pp. 93-94, emphases added. Come Out From Among Them is also on the new LIBRARY OF PRESBYTERIAN HERITAGE PUBLICATIONS and PROTESTANT HERITAGE PRESS ALL ON ONE CD, including some of Calvin's never before translated anti-Nicodemite writings in Come Out From Among Them, The Anti-Nicodemite Writings of John Calvin and other important and previously unreleased titles -- as compiled and/or written by Kevin Reed
