The Shepherd Of Hermas - The First Mandate

...First of all, believe tha GOD is ONE [In TRINITY], WHO created all things and set them in order, and made out of what did not exist everything that is, and WHO contains all things but is HIMSELF uncontained. Believe in HIM, therefore, and fear HIM, and fearing HIM, be self-controlled. Keep these things, and you will cast off all evil from yourself and will put on every virtue of righteousness and will live to GOD, if you keep this commandment. ... --The Shephered of Hermas, The First Mandate (mid second century AD)
