This is from his Institutes…
…all those who spurn the spiritual food, divinely extended to them through the hand of the church, deserve to perish in famine and hunger.
[God] provides for our weakness in that he prefers to address us in human fashion through interpreters in order to draw us to himself, rather than to thunder at us and drive us away.
…although God’s power is not bound to outward means, he has nonetheless bound us to this ordinary manner of teaching.
Is the church God’s appointed means of educating the saints? And if so, what place does that put seminaries in? Should there be a direct connection between seminaries and churches?
