from Calvin’s Institutes

Calvin’s Institutes (IV,1,5-6): the church’s ministers, since they speak for God, are not to be despised.

Every one who listens with docility to the ministers whom God appoints, will know by the beneficial result, that for good reason God is pleased with this method of teaching, and for good reason has laid believers under this modest yoke.
