The First Epistle Of Clement To The Corinthians by Clement of Rome
Chapter LIV.--He who is full of love will incur every loss, that peace may be restored to the Church.
Who then among you is noble-minded? who compassionate? who full of love? Let him declare, |If on my account sedition and disagreement and schisms have arisen, I will depart, I will go away whithersoever ye desire, and I will do whatever the majority commands; only let the flock of Christ live on terms of peace with the presbyters set over it.| He that acts thus shall procure to himself great glory in the Lord; and every place will welcome him. For |the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof.| These things they who live a godly life, that is never to be repented of, both have done and always will do.
