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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XI.—Cause of the Fall of Man.

“But they, because they had at first no experience of evils, being insensible to the gift of good things, were turned to ingratitude by abundance of food and luxuries, so that they even thought that there is no Providence, since they had not by previous labour got good things as the reward of righteousness, inasmuch as no one of them had fallen into any suffering or disease, or any other necessity; so that, as is usual for men afflicted on account of wicked transgression, they should look about for the God who is able to heal them. 1096   But immediately after their despite, which proceeded from fearlessness and secure luxury, a certain just punishment met them, as following from a certain arranged harmony, removing from them good things as having hurt them, and introducing evil things instead, as advantageous.



The general meaning seems to be as given; but the text is undoubtedly corrupt, and scarcely intelligible.
