“Whatever has been rightly said by anyone in any place belongs to us Christians, because second to our devotion to God is our love of reason which is from the self-existent and indescribable God.”

― Justin Martyr, The First and Second Apology


“Christ is the first-born of God, and we have declared above that He is the Word of whom every race of men were partakers; and those who lived reasonably are Christians, even though they have been thought atheists.”

― Justin Martyr, The First and Second Apology
