On The Lie of Heliocentrism
The Christian is not to compromise so as to obscure the distinction between good and evil, and is to avoid the errors of those dreamers who have a spirit of bitterness and contradiction, who reprove everything and prevent the order of nature.
We will see some who are so deranged, not only in religion but who in all things reveal their monstrous nature, that they will say that the sun does not move, and that it is the earth which shifts and turns.
When we see such minds we must indeed confess that the devil posses them, and that God sets them before us as mirrors, in order to keep us in his fear.
(John Calvin – Sermon on 1st Corinthians 10:19-24 – Calvino Opera Selecta, Corpus Refomatorum – Volume 49 -Page 677)
