Writings in Connection with the Donatist Controversy.: Chapter 30
Chapter 30.—58. Another Julianus of Marcelliana 1839 said: "If a man can serve two masters, God and mammon, 1840 then baptism also can serve two, the Christian and the heretic." 1841
59. Truly, if it can serve the self-restrained and the covetous man, the sober and the drunken, the well-affectioned and the murderer, why should it not also serve the Christian and the heretic?—whom, indeed, it does not really serve; but it ministers to them, and is administered by them, for salvation to those who use it right, and for judgment to such as use it wrong.
Marcelliana (Gyrnmarcelli) in ecclesiastical province of Numidia.507:1840
Matt. vi. 24.507:1841
