|CHURCH FATHERS||NEW TESTAMENT|
By him would God have us to taste the knowledge of
Immortality: who being the brightness of his glory, is by so much greater than the angels, as he
has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
[I Clement 17:18]
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the
express image of his person ... sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; being made so
much better than the angels and he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
Let us then not only call him Lord; for that
will not save us. For he saith: Not every one that saith unto me Lord, Lord, shall be saved, but
he that doeth righteousness.
[II Clement 2:12]
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord,
shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
It is therefore fitting that you should by all
means glorify Jesus Christ who hath glorified you: that by a uniform obedience ye may be perfectly
joined together, in the same mind, and in the same judgment: and may all speak the same things
[Ignatius to the Ephesians 1:8]
Now I beseech you, brethern, by the name of
our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you:
but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
[I Corinthians 1:10]
But remembering what the Lord has taught us
saying, Judge not, and ye shall not be judged; forgive, and ye shall be forgiven; be ye
merciful, and ye shall obtain mercy; for with the same measure that ye mete withal, it shall
be measured to you again.
[Polycarp to the Philippians 1:10]
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn
not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven. ... For with the same
measure that ye mete withal, it shall be measured to you again.
