The Poor Caitiff. Chapter Two: On The Ten Commandments

A Man asked Christ what he should do to have the life that shall last forever, and Christ said to him, If thou will enter into everlasting’ life, keep the commandments. By this answer of Christ, each man may understand that there is no other way to heaven, without keeping these commands, and therefore each man and woman who desires speedily to come to that life, which shall last forever, let him do his business with all strength of body and soul to keep these commandments, and despise all sophistries and arguments of false flatterers and heretics, who both in work and word despise these commandments, and with false feigned arguments reply against simple men, saying that it is not lawful to be busy about the keeping of them; yea, and saying that it is necessary sometimes to break them.
