"To the wicked, all things are wicked; but to the just, all things are just and right"

This is a variation of Titus 1:15: “Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure.” Most biblical commentators agree that these lines refer to the distinction between clean and unclean foods made by Judaism. However, they have also been used more controversially by some adherents of Calvinism to justify the idea that Christians are free from moral constraint. Such assertions are not to be met with from Calvin himself. Though he did not believe that salvation was contingent on one’s acts, he did believe that divine grace would naturally inspire good works.
