Wycliffe...On Giving An Account

“Further, since all Christians, as the apostle teaches in 2 Cor. v. 10, must stand before Christ’s tribunal and give and account of all the gifts He bestowed upon them, it is necessary that all the faithful should know those gifts and their use, so that their answer may be plain. No answer by a prelate or attorney will then avail, but each will be required to answer for himself.”
John Wyclif, Speculum Secularium Dominorum, (as found in John Wyclif, Select English Writings, Edited by Herbert E. Winn. London: Oxford University Press, 1929, P. 6) P. 74.
