Petr Chelcicky
He who obeys God needs no other authority.
Chelcicky quotes
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.
Our faith obliges us to bind wounds, not to make blood run.
