John Calvin and the light of truth

“Whenever, therefore, we meet with heathen writers, let us learn from that light of truth which is admirably displayed in their works, that the human mind, fallen as it is, and corrupted from its integrity, is yet invested and adorned by God with excellent talents. If we believe that the Spirit of God is the only fountain of truth, we shall neither reject nor despise the truth itself; wherever it shall appear, unless we wish to insult the Spirit of God” (Institutes of the Christian Religion, Vol 1, p.288).
