The Epistles of Clement.: Chapter LIV
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 majority 4289 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; 4290 and every place will welcome 4291 him. For “the earth is the Lords, and the fulness thereof.” 4292 These things they who live a godly life that is never to be repented of, both have done and always will do.
Literally, “the multitude.”245:4290
