Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Vol. IV:
Writings in Connection with the Donatist Controversy.: Chapter 30

Early Church Fathers  Index     

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.
