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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXXVIII.—Corruption of the Law.

“For the Scriptures have had joined to them many falsehoods against God on this account.  The prophet Moses having by the order of God delivered the law, with the explanations, to certain chosen men, some seventy in number, in order that they also might instruct such of the people as chose, after a little the written law had added to it certain falsehoods contrary to the law of God, 946 who made the heaven and the earth, and all things in them; the wicked one having dared to work this for some righteous purpose.  And this took place in reason and judgment, that those might be convicted who should dare to listen to the things written against God, and those who, through love towards Him, should not only disbelieve the things spoken against Him, but should not even endure to hear them at all, even if they should happen to be true, judging it much safer to incur danger with respect to religious faith, than to live with an evil conscience on account of blasphemous words.
