Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol IX:
The Epistles of Clement.: Chapter IV

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter IV.—True Confession of Christ.

Let us, then, not only call Him Lord, for that will not save us.  For He saith, “Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall be saved, but he that worketh righteousness.” 4350   Wherefore, brethren, let us confess Him by our works, by loving one another, by not committing adultery, or speaking evil of one another, or cherishing envy; but by being continent, compassionate, and good.  We ought also to sympathize with one another, and not be avaricious.  By such works let us confess Him, 4351 and not by those that are of an opposite kind.  And it is not fitting that we should fear men, but rather God.  For this reason, if we should do such [wicked] things, the Lord hath said, “Even though ye were gathered together to 4352 me in my very bosom, yet if ye were not to keep my commandments, I would cast you off, and say unto you, Depart from me; I know you not whence ye are, ye workers of iniquity.” 4353
