Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Pseudo-Clementine Literature.: Chapter IX

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter IX.—The Two Kingdoms.

“For he who persists in evil, and is the servant of evil, cannot be made a portion of good so long as he persists in evil, because from the beginning, as we have said, God instituted two kingdoms, and has given to each man the power of becoming a portion of that kingdom to which he shall yield himself to obey.  And since it is decreed by God that no one man can be a servant of both kingdoms, therefore endeavour with all earnestness to betake yourselves to the covenant and laws of the good King.  Wherefore also the true Prophet, when He was present with us, and saw some rich men negligent with respect to the worship of God, thus unfolded the truth of this matter:  ‘No one,’ said He, ‘can serve two masters; ye cannot serve God and mammon;’ 755 calling riches, in the language of His country, mammon.
