Patristic Quote of the Day

Since the first of mankind were in this way beguiled and over-argued by him, not putting earnest faith in God. For the contrary of what God had said he [the devil] promised them [Adam and Eve], and puffed them up with vain hopes, and brought them to unbelief, and so cast them out of the blessings they actually possessed.—St. John Chrysostom, Homily 13 on St. Matthew
