Ante-Nicene Father Quote of the Day

You say that Matter was reformed for the better6556—from a worse condition, of course; and thus you would make the better a copy of the worse. Everything was in confusion, but now it is reduced to order; and would you also say, that out of order, disorder is produced? No one thing is the exact mirror6557 of another thing; that is to say, it is not its co-equal.
