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 majority42894289    Literally, “the multitude.” 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;42904290    I. ἐν Χριστῷ (in Christ). and every place will welcome42914291    Or, “receive.” him.  For “the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof.”42924292    Ps. xxiv. 1; 1 Cor. x. 26, 28.  These things they who live a godly life that is never to be repented of, both have done and always will do.
