Ante-Nicene Father Quote of the Day

Peter, (1 Peter 2:13) no doubt, had likewise said that the king indeed must be honoured, yet so that the king be honoured only when he keeps to his own sphere, when he is far from assuming divine honours; because both father and mother will be loved along with God, not put on an equality with Him. Besides, one will not be permitted to love even life more than God.

Tertullian

Scorpiace (Antidote for the Scorpion’s Sting)

Trans. by Rev. S. Thelwall

Ch. xiv
