In this book, Farel wrote, "since I stand in your grace through this faith, I can no longer sin." Equally awkward was the social-revolutionary emphasis evident in Farel's open affirmation of community of goods: "I believe that in this Christian community all things should be held in common and that no one possesses anything of his own."
