Through Faith They Still Speak (9/2/05)

"For to him who has lived well there is advantage after death. Thou, however, when one day thou diest, shalt be taken away in an evil place. But they who believe in Christ shall be led into a good place, and those to whom that delight is given are caressed; but to you who are of a double mind, against you is punishment without the body." (Commodianus, The Instructions of Commodianus in Favour of Christian Discipline. Against the Gods of the Heathens., 24)
