Quotes[edit]

The Net of Faith (c. 1443)[edit]

Online translation by Enrico C. S. Molnár
  • He who obeys God needs no other authority.
  • Our faith obliges us to bind wounds, not to make blood run.
  • Wars and other kinds of murder have their beginning in the hatred of the enemy and in the unwillingness to be patient with evil. Their root is in intemperate self-love and in immoderate affection for temporal possessions. These conflicts are brought into this world because men do not trust the Son of God enough to abide by his commandments.
