Clement of Rome - heavenly witnesses

Steven Avery

Clement of Rome

Clement of Rome, First Epistle

Given as an early allusion by Henry Hammond. It can be used more as a defense of 3 language in the New Testament (often attacked by Unitarians and others) than a specific allusion to the heavenly witnesses.

1Clem 58:2
Receive our counsel, and ye shall have no occasion of regret. For as God liveth, and the Lord Jesus Christ liveth, and the Holy Spirit, who are the faith and the hope of the elect, so surely shall he, who with lowliness of mind and instant in gentleness hath without regretfulness performed the ordinances and commandments that are given by God, be enrolled and have a name among the number of them that are saved through Jesus Christ, through whom is the glory unto Him for ever and ever. Amen.

Henry Hammond
