Hailstorms, tempests, freezing weather and other storms…

Calvin on the effects of the fall:

“Whenever we see sterile regions and lands, sometimes hideous to look upon, whenever we see great fertility laid waste by hailstorms, tempests, freezing weather, and other storms, let us realize that such are the fruits of our sins!  If our father Adam and we with him had continued in that state in which we had been placed, it is certain we would today enjoy a felicity so great that there would be neither sadness nor displeasure, and we would always be praising God’s name and enjoying his infinite blessings, which he had spread before us.  For we know that he does not weary in well doing.”

Sermon on Gen 1:29-31
