“You are accustomed in conversation yourselves to say, in disparagement of us, 'Why is so-and-so deceitful, when the Christians are so self-denying? why merciless, when they are so merciful?' You thus bear your testimony to the fact that this is not the character of Christians, when you ask, in the way of a retort, how men who are reputed to be Christians can be of such and such a disposition.” Tertullian, To the Nations, 5, ANF 3:113
