Calvin, on whether my dog will go to heaven

Some questions have been around a long time!

“Mr Calvin, will my dog go to heaven?”

“Certain subtle, but scarce sober men, demand whether all kinds of beasts shall be immortal; but, if these speculations may have loose reins, whither will they carry us? Therefore, let us be content with this simple doctrine, that there shal be such a temperature, and such a decent order, that nothing shall appear either deformed or ruinous.”

Commentary on Romans, 218-19
