He shows that to discover the meaning we 100 1, arg | meaning we must attend both to things and to signs, as 101 1, arg | attend both to things and to signs, as it is necessary 102 1, arg | signs, as it is necessary to know what things we ought 103 1, arg | know what things we ought to teach to the Christian people, 104 1, arg | things we ought to teach to the Christian people, and 105 1, arg | knowledge of these things is to be sought. In this first 106 1, arg | into three classes, things to be enjoyed, things to be 107 1, arg | things to be enjoyed, things to be used, and things which 108 1, arg | only object which ought to be enjoyed is the Triune 109 1, arg | ascended into heaven, taking to Himself as his bride the 110 1, arg | resurrection of the body to eternal glory; if not, we 111 1, arg | not, we shall be raised to everlasting punishment. 112 1, arg | These matters relating to faith having been expounded, 113 1, arg | expounded, the author goes on to show that all objects, except 114 1, arg | loved, yet our love is not to rest in them, but to have 115 1, arg | not to rest in them, but to have reference to God. And 116 1, arg | them, but to have reference to God. And we ourselves are 117 1, arg | not objects of enjoyment to God: he uses us, but for 118 1, arg | advantage. He then goes on to show that love the love 119 1, 1 | enunciation of the meaning, and is to be undertaken in dependence 120 1, 1 | and one that, if difficult to carry out, it is, I fear, 121 1, 1 | is, I fear, presumptuous to enter upon. And presumptuous 122 1, 1 | fear but that He will go on to supply what is yet wanting 123 1, 1 | wanting when once I have begun to use what He has already 124 1, 1 | yet possessed as it ought to be possessed. The Lord saith, " 125 1, 1 | Lord saith, "Whosoever has, to him shall be given." I He 126 1, 1 | I He will give, then, to those who have; that is 127 1, 1 | those who have; that is to say, if they use freely 128 1, 1 | have received, He will add to and perfect His gifts. The 129 1, 1 | before the disciples began to divide them among the hungry 130 1, 1 | But when once they began to distribute them, though 131 1, 1 | Lord has already vouchsafed to me with a view to undertaking 132 1, 1 | vouchsafed to me with a view to undertaking this work will, 133 1, 1 | will, as soon as I begin to impart them to others, be 134 1, 1 | as I begin to impart them to others, be multiplied by 135 1, 1 | poverty, I shall be made to rejoice in a marvellous 136 1, 2 | thing" in a strict sense, to signify that which is never 137 1, 2 | cast into the bitter waters to make them sweet, nor the 138 1, 2 | call signs: those things, to wit, which are used to indicate 139 1, 2 | to wit, which are used to indicate something else. 140 1, 2 | sign. And so, in regard to this distinction between 141 1, 2 | of the subject according to which I am to discuss things 142 1, 2 | according to which I am to discuss things first and 143 1, 2 | remember that what we have now to consider about things is 144 1, 3 | things, then, which are to be enjoyed, others which 145 1, 3 | enjoyed, others which are to be used, others still which 146 1, 3 | objects of use assist, and (so to speak) support us in our 147 1, 3 | objects, if we set ourselves to enjoy those which we ought 148 1, 3 | enjoy those which we ought to use, are hindered in our 149 1, 4 | For to enjoy a thing is to rest 150 1, 4 | For to enjoy a thing is to rest with satisfaction in 151 1, 4 | in it for its own sake. To use, on the other hand, 152 1, 4 | use, on the other hand, is to employ whatever means are 153 1, 4 | means are at one's disposal to obtain what one desires, 154 1, 4 | unlawful use ought rather to be called an abuse. Suppose, 155 1, 4 | our wandering, and wishing to put an end to our misery, 156 1, 4 | and wishing to put an end to our misery, determined to 157 1, 4 | to our misery, determined to return home. We find, however, 158 1, 4 | land or water, in order to reach that fatherland where 159 1, 4 | fatherland where our enjoyment is to commence. But the beauty 160 1, 4 | these things which we ought to use into objects of enjoyment, 161 1, 4 | enjoyment, we become unwilling to hasten the end of our journey; 162 1, 4 | from God; and if we wish to return to our Father's home, 163 1, 4 | and if we wish to return to our Father's home, this 164 1, 5 | supreme above all, and common to all who enjoy Him, if He 165 1, 5 | all. For it is not easy to find a name that will suitably 166 1, 5 | excellence, unless it is better to speak in this way: The Trinity, 167 1, 5 | Spirit is only Holy Spirit. To all three belong the same 168 1, 6 | nothing more than desire to speak; and if I have said 169 1, 6 | it is not what I desired to say. How do I know this, 170 1, 6 | And so God is not even to be called "unspeakable," 171 1, 6 | called "unspeakable," because to say even this is to speak 172 1, 6 | because to say even this is to speak of Him. Thus there 173 1, 6 | opposition of words is rather to be avoided by silence than 174 1, 6 | avoided by silence than to be explained away by speech. 175 1, 6 | of Him, has condescended to accept the worship of men' 176 1, 6 | medium of our own words to rejoice in His praise.

Or if they think 186 1, 7 | shape and form, according to what each man thinks the 187 1, 7 | effort of the intelligence to reach a conception of God, 188 1, 7 | natures that are subject to change. All, however, strive 189 1, 7 | however, strive emulously to exalt the excellence of 190 1, 7 | nor could any one be found to believe that any being to 191 1, 7 | to believe that any being to whom there exists a superior 192 1, 8 | Chap. 8.

He is to be taught, too, in what 356 1, 25 | taught, too, in what measure to love his body, so as to 357 1, 25 | to love his body, so as to care for it wisely and within 358 1, 25 | his body also, and desires to keep it safe and sound. 359 1, 25 | have been found voluntarily to suffer both pains and amputations 360 1, 25 | more highly. But no one is to be told not to desire the 361 1, 25 | no one is to be told not to desire the safety and health 362 1, 25 | very fond of and desires to heap up, but it is because 363 1, 25 | sustains. It is superfluous to argue longer on a point 364 1, 25 | wicked men often compels us to do. ~ 365 1, 26 | chap. 26. The command to love God and our neighbour 366 1, 26 | neighbour includes a command to love ourselves~ 367 1, 26 | violated, and which is common to us with the beasts (for 368 1, 26 | only remained necessary to lay injunctions upon us 369 1, 26 | injunctions upon us in regard to God above us, and our neighbour 370 1, 26 | classes of things that are to be loved is overlooked in 371 1, 26 | evident all other things are to find their centre in Him, 372 1, 26 | centre in Him, nothing seems to be said about our love for 373 1, 27 | loves what he ought not to love, nor fails to love 374 1, 27 | ought not to love, nor fails to love what he ought to love, 375 1, 27 | fails to love what he ought to love, nor loves that more 376 1, 27 | loves that more which ought to be loved less, nor loves 377 1, 27 | that equally which ought to be loved either less or 378 1, 27 | less or more which ought to be loved equally. No sinner 379 1, 27 | loved equally. No sinner is to be loved as a sinner; and 380 1, 27 | sinner; and every man is to be loved as a man for God' 381 1, 27 | for God's sake; but God is to be loved for His own sake. 382 1, 27 | own sake. And if God is to be loved more than any man, 383 1, 27 | any man, each man ought to love God more than himself. 384 1, 27 | himself. Likewise we ought to love another man better 385 1, 27 | because all things are to be loved in reference to 386 1, 27 | to be loved in reference to God, and another man can 387 1, 28 | chap. 28. How we are to decide whom to aid~ 388 1, 28 | How we are to decide whom to aid~ 389 1, 28 | Further, all men are to be loved equally. But since 390 1, 28 | since you cannot do good to all, you are to pay special 391 1, 28 | do good to all, you are to pay special regard to those 392 1, 28 | are to pay special regard to those who, by the accidents 393 1, 28 | commodity, and felt bound to give it away to somebody 394 1, 28 | felt bound to give it away to somebody who had none, and 395 1, 28 | that it could not be given to more than one person; if 396 1, 28 | fairer than choose by lot to which you would give what 397 1, 28 | what could not be given to both. Just so among men: 398 1, 28 | happens for the time being to be more closely connected 399 1, 29 | chap. 29. We are to desire and endeavour that 400 1, 29 | God, we love partly those to whom we render services, 401 1, 29 | those who render services to us, partly those who both 402 1, 29 | look for none. We ought to desire, however, that they 403 1, 29 | accept from them should tend to that one end. For in the 404 1, 29 | works in every way he can to secure new admirers for 405 1, 29 | more anxious he becomes to show him to others; and 406 1, 29 | anxious he becomes to show him to others; and if he find any 407 1, 29 | indifferent, he does all he can to excite his interest by urging 408 1, 29 | strives in every way he can to remove it. Now, if this 409 1, 29 | what does it become us to do who live in the fellowship 410 1, 29 | true happiness of life, to whom all who love Him owe 411 1, 29 | fear that any one who comes to know Him will be disappointed 412 1, 29 | our love, not for any gain to Himself, but that those 413 1, 29 | For if they would turn to Him, they must of necessity 414 1, 30 | 30. Whether angels are to be reckoned our neighbours~ 415 1, 30 | enjoyment of Him whom we long to enjoy; and the more we enjoy 416 1, 30 | more easy do we find it to bear our pilgrimage, and 417 1, 30 | But it is not irrational to ask whether in those two 418 1, 30 | that He who commanded us to love our neighbour made 419 1, 30 | Apostle Paul. For when the man to whom our Lord delivered 420 1, 30 | those two commandments, and to whom He said that on these 421 1, 30 | going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, fell among thieves, 422 1, 30 | that nobody was neighbour to this man except him who 423 1, 30 | upon him and came forward to relieve and care for him. 424 1, 30 | himself interrogated in turn. To whom our Lord says, "Go 425 1, 30 | neighbour whom it is our duty to help in his need, or whom 426 1, 30 | whom it would be our duty to help if he were in need. 427 1, 30 | duty it would be in turn to help us is our neighbour. 428 1, 30 | can be neighbour except to a neighbour. And, again, 429 1, 30 | made of any one as a person to whom the offices of mercy 430 1, 30 | Lord extends the rule even to our enemies? "Love your 431 1, 30 | Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you." ~ 432 1, 30 | thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour." Whoever 433 1, 30 | this precept, is compelled to admit, what is at once most 434 1, 30 | Christian or were an enemy, to commit adultery with his 435 1, 30 | adultery with his wife, or to kill him, or to covet his 436 1, 30 | wife, or to kill him, or to covet his goods. And as 437 1, 30 | clear that every man is to be considered our neighbour, 438 1, 30 | neighbour, because we are to work no ill to any man. ~ 439 1, 30 | because we are to work no ill to any man. ~ 440 1, 30 | But now, if every one to whom we ought to show, or 441 1, 30 | every one to whom we ought to show, or who ought to show 442 1, 30 | ought to show, or who ought to show to us, the of offices 443 1, 30 | show, or who ought to show to us, the of offices of mercy 444 1, 30 | manifest that the command to love our neighbour embraces 445 1, 30 | by turning the attention to many passages of Holy Scripture. 446 1, 30 | Himself, our Lord, desired to be called our neighbour. 447 1, 30 | Lord Jesus Christ points to Himself under the figure 448 1, 30 | the man who brought aid to him who was lying half dead 449 1, 30 | our nature, the command to love God is distinct from 450 1, 30 | God is distinct from that to love our neighbour. For 451 1, 30 | goodness, but we show pity to one another on account of 452 1, 31 | for use, there seems still to be something that requires 453 1, 31 | ignorant or in doubt as to the fact that the light 454 1, 31 | says most plainly, "I said to the LORD, Thou art my God, 455 1, 31 | uses us, I am at a loss to discover in what way He 456 1, 32 | objects, we do so with a view to the full enjoyment of the 457 1, 32 | use of us, has reference to His own goodness. For it 458 1, 32 | AM," and "Thou shalt say to them, I AM has sent me unto 459 1, 32 | their existence entirely to Him, and are good only so 460 1, 32 | so far as He has given it to them to be so. That use, 461 1, 32 | He has given it to them to be so. That use, then, which 462 1, 32 | then, which God is said to make of us has no reference 463 1, 32 | make of us has no reference to His own advantage, but to 464 1, 32 | to His own advantage, but to ours only; and, so far as 465 1, 32 | concerned, has reference only to His goodness. When we take 466 1, 32 | leave the mercy we show to him who needs it to go without 467 1, 32 | show to him who needs it to go without reward. Now this 468 1, 33 | proud angel arrogate this to themselves, and are glad 469 1, 33 | themselves, and are glad to have the hope of others 470 1, 33 | we are weary and anxious to stay with them and rest 471 1, 33 | in them, set themselves to recruit our energies with 472 1, 33 | then urge us thus refreshed to go on our way towards Him, 473 1, 33 | admonisheth the man who is about to worship him, that he should 474 1, 33 | made happy, and you rejoice to have come to Him in whose 475 1, 33 | you rejoice to have come to Him in whose presence you 476 1, 33 | And accordingly, Paul says to Philemon, "Yea, brother, 477 1, 33 | in the immediate context to "enjoy" is used in the sense 478 1, 33 | is used in the sense of to "use with delight." For 479 1, 33 | delight, and make it a means to that which you are permanently 480 1, 33 | which you are permanently to rest in, you are using it, 481 1, 33 | is an abuse of language to say that you enjoy it. But 482 1, 33 | enjoy it. But if you cling to it, and rest in it, finding 483 1, 33 | truly and properly said to enjoy it. And this we must 484 1, 34 | 34. Christ the first way to God~ 485 1, 34 | Christ, desiring not only to give the possession to those 486 1, 34 | only to give the possession to those who had completed 487 1, 34 | completed the journey, but also to be Himself the way to those 488 1, 34 | also to be Himself the way to those who were just setting 489 1, 34 | setting out, determined to take a fleshly body. Whence 490 1, 34 | is, that those who wished to come might begin their journey 491 1, 34 | after God who called him to the reward of His heavenly 492 1, 34 | their journey who desire to attain to the truth, and 493 1, 34 | journey who desire to attain to the truth, and to rest in 494 1, 34 | attain to the truth, and to rest in eternal life. For 495 1, 34 | that is, by me men come, to me they come, in me they 496 1, 34 | they rest. For when we come to Him, we come to the Father 497 1, 34 | we come to Him, we come to the Father also, because 498 1, 34 | us, so that we are able to rest permanently in the 499 1, 34 | far as He has condescended to be our way, is willing to 500 1, 34 | to be our way, is willing to detain us, but wishes us
