Justin Marytr: a.d.160

Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol 1, pg 176
We who formerly murdered one another now refrain from making war even upon our enemies.

Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol 1, pg 254
We used to be filled with war, mutual slaughter, and every kind of wickedness. However, now all of us have, throughout the whole earth, changed our warlike weapons. We have changed our swords into plowshares, and our spears into farming implements.
