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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter X.—Idolatry a Delusion of the Serpent.

“For His alone is the excellent glory of being alone uncreated, while all else is created.  As, therefore, it is the prerogative of the uncreated to be God, so whatever is created is not God indeed.  Before all things, therefore, you ought to consider the evil-working suggestion of the deceiving serpent that is in you, which seduces you by the promise of better reason, creeping from your brain to your spinal marrow, and setting great value upon deceiving you. 1124
