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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XIX.—Peter’s Speech Ended.

“God is my witness:  one adultery is as bad as many murders; and what is terrible in it is this, that the fearfulness and impiety of its murders are not seen.  For, when blood is shed, the dead body remains lying, and all are struck by the terrible nature of the occurrence.  But the murders of the soul caused by adultery, though they are more frightful, yet, since they are not seen by men, do not make the daring a whit less eager in their impulse.  Know, O man, whose breath it is that thou hast to keep thee in life, and thou shalt not wish that it be polluted.  By adultery alone is the breath of God polluted.  And therefore it drags him who has polluted it into the fire; for it hastens to deliver up its insulter to everlasting punishment.”
