My Only Guide... My Constant Rule

A letter from John Calvin, to his friend, Laelius Socinus, who had departed from orthodox doctrine. It was written probably sometime in the last few months of 1551:

Yet nothing shall ever hinder me from openly avowing what I have learned from the word of God… It is my only guide, and to acquiesce in its plain doctrines shall be my constant rule of wisdom.
