So far I don't like Origen...

" Then came Peter and said unto Him, Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him?" Matthew 18:21http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif

"there is no forgiveness, not even to a brother, who has sinned beyond the seven and seventy times." - Origen's Commentary on Matthew (5)

I must respectfully facepalm and say unto Origen: 'epic fail'.


  1. Origen also coined the phrase: "outside the Church, which is the house of Rahab, no salvation"

  2. That phrase I prefer, as do I prefer his quotation about God always being greater than our conception of God.
