But, are not the knowledge of God and the principles, like the common sentences, imprinted in the nature of man, even though it is so corrupted?

They obviously are, though they are like the ruins of a magnificent building. Most importantly I say that this [saving] faith does not consist of natural knowledge, but it is necessary to add that which God particularly revealed to the world through the Prophets & Apostles, which flesh and blood could never deduce. This final point must be noted, that in which we find the special difference between faith and natural knowledge, that is, that each believer particularly applies to himself the promise of eternal life, whose testimony the Scriptures call certainty.

For the reference, see Theodore Beza: saving faith is not the natural knowledge of God.
