Calvin on the mystery of God's sovereignty in relation to evil

It is “. . . a secret so much excelling the insight of the human mind that I am not ashamed to confess ignorance.  Far be it from any of the faithful to be ashamed of ignorance of what the Lord withdraws into the glory of his inaccessible light.”

-- John Calvin, "Concerning the Eternal Predestination of God," translated by J. K. S. Reid (London, 1961), page 124.
