The Clementine Homilies by Unknown
Chapter LII.--Other Sayings of Christ.
|Since, then, while the heaven and the earth still stand, sacrifices have passed away, and kingdoms, and prophecies among those who are born of woman, and such like, as not being ordinances of God; hence therefore He says, Every plant which the heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up.' Wherefore He, being the true Prophet, said, I am the gate of life; he who entereth through me entereth into life,' there being no other teaching able to save. Wherefore also He cried, and said, Come unto me, all who labour,' that is, who are seeking the truth, and not finding it; and again, My sheep hear my voice;' and elsewhere, Seek and find,' since the truth does not lie on the surface.
