Menno Simons (1)

“True Christians do not know vengeance, no matter how they are mistreated. In patience they posses their souls. Luke 21:18. And they do not break their peace, even if they should be tempted by bondage, torture, poverty, and besides, by the sword and fire. They do not cry, Vengeance, vengeance, as does the world; but with Christ they supplicate and pray: Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. Luke 23:34; Acts 7:60” [“Reply to Gellius Faber,” Complete Writings of Menno Simons, pp. 554-556]
