Roger Williams on Wealth & Christianity

“The neerer Christs followers have approached to worldly wealth, ease, liberty, honour, pleasure, etc. … the further and further have they departed from God, from his Truth, from the Simplicitie, Power, and Puritie of Christ Jesus and true Christianitie.”

— Roger Williams, as quoted in Roger Williams: The Church and the State by Edmund S. Morgan
