Theodicy for Theidiots

More pearls of wisdom from John Calvin! Apparently, god is omniscient but not omnipotent:
For God's collection of a Church for himself, from time to time, from the children of Abraham, rather than from the profane nations, was in consideration of his covenant, which, being violated by the multitude, He restricted to a few, to prevent a total failure.
Well, that certainly clears a few things up, doesn’t it?

BTW, my Calvinist commenter is back—anyone want to join the conversation?
