Question, No. 1: Luther or Calvin?

In preparing lectures for my Reformation and Modern Church History class, I came across this quote:

Therefore, Christian faith is entirely extinguished, the promises of God and the whole gospel are completely destroyed, if we teach and believe that it is not for us to know the necessary foreknowledge of God and the necessity of the things that are to come to pass. For this is the one supreme consolation of Christians in all adversities, to know that God does not lie, but does all things immutably, and that his will can neither be resisted nor changed nor hindered.

Is this Calvin or Luther? (Answer tomorrow)
