Robert Barclay Quote

Our boldness and Christian suffering, they call obstinacy and pertinacity, though half as much, if among themselves, they would account Christian courage, and nobility. And though thus by their envy they strive to read all, relating to us, backwards, counting these things vices in us, which in themselves they would extol as virtues, yet hath the strength of Truth extorted this confession often from them, that we are generally a pure and clean people as to the outward conversation.
