Therefore do not let your good be reviled. For the kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. For whoever serves Christ in this is pleasing to God and approved by men.1 (2) I ask how our good can be reviled.

In dictating up to this point as we were able on the Epistle to the Romans, there has been expended a great deal of effort and time.1 In fact, I must confess, most loving brother Heraclius, that while I desire to satisfy your wishes, I have nearly forgotten the command where it is enjoined, “Do not lift a burden...
