How difficult it is for us to believe, every one of us knows too well by his own experience.  To believe is not lightly to form an opinion or to assent only to what is said, but a firm, undoubting conviction, so that we may dare to subscribe to the truth as fully proved.  It is for this reason that the Apostle heaps together so many things in confirmation of the gospel. – John Calvin (1509-1564), commenting on 1 John 1.1-2.
