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 [4289] 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; [4290] and every place will welcome [4291] him. For "the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof." [4292] These things they who live a godly life that is never to be repented of, both have done and always will do.


[4289] Literally, "the multitude."

[4290] I. en Christo (in Christ).

[4291] Or, "receive."

[4292] Psalm 24:1; 1 Corinthians 10:26, 28.
