    Of undaunted courage, unflinching in the face of danger or adversity and cowed by no man, he was the steadfast champion and great defender of the faith of Nicea, the pillar of the Church, as Saint Gregory the Theologian calls him. For the Sontoo, he says, not only knows not the Father exactly, for He fails in comprehensionbut 'He knows not even His own essence ;'— and that 'the essences of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghostare separate in nature, and estranged, and disconnected, and alienand without participation of each other ;' and, in his own words, 'utterly unlike from each other in essence and gloryunto infinity. On December 24,impatient with the tedious forms of judicial proceedings, as one historian records, the pagans dragged him from prison and lynched him. Therefore, if on asking parents about children, they get for answer, that children which are by nature are not from without, but from their parentslet them confess in like manner concerning the Word of Godthat He is simply from the Father. Sabellianism was doctrine adhered to by a sect of the Montanists.

    The woman answered, That he also may be vouchsafed the honor of martyrdom. For if the doctrine of God is now perfect in a Triad, and this is the true and only Religion, and this is the good and the truthit must have been always so, unless the good and the truth be something that came after, and the doctrine of God is completed by additions. And as to this again, if it be other than the essence of the Sonan equal extravagance will meet us; there being in that case something between this that is from the Father and the essence of the Sonwhatever that be. Athanasius was exiled following his condemnation by the First Synod of Tyre in though he was later recalledand the Synod of Jerusalem the following year restored Arius to communion. In many incidents of his life, we shall see the twinkle of his keen, searching eye. They ought in creation also to entertain the same, and to supply God with materials, and so deny Him to be Creator, till they end in grovelling with Manichees.

    Although his character has been severely assailed by his opponents, Arius appears to have been a man of personal ascetic achievement, pure morals, and decided convictions. He adds an angry comment on the Saint's having dared to baptize during my reign some pagan Greek ladies of noble birth. This time he vanished into the Nitrian desert, where the monks hid him. Such thoughts then being evidently unseemly and untrue, we are driven to say that what is from the essence of the Fatherand proper to Him, is entirely the Son; for it is all one to say that God is wholly participated, and that He begets; and what does begetting signify but a Son?

On December 24,impatient with the tedious forms of judicial proceedings, as one historian records, the pagans dragged him from prison and lynched him. Anthony, through ascetism, prayer, fasting, study, and meditation, emerges as an ordinary man who is transformed by complete submission to God and total abnegation into a sort of Christian Jedi master —- total in tune with a higher spiritual power and holiness that give him the ability to do amazing service and feats in the furtherance of the Kingdom of God.

Wherefore He is ever Father, nor is the character of Father adventitious to Godlest He seem alterable; for if it is good that He be Father, but has not ever been Father, then good has not ever been in Him.

St. Athanasius

For instance, carpenter, and goldsmith, and potter, each, according to his own art, works upon materials previously existing, making what vessels he pleases; and the God of all Himself, having taken the dust of the earth existing and already brought to be, fashions man; that very earth, however, whereas it was not once, He has at one time made by His own Word.

Arius himself attended the council, as did his bishop, Alexander. Both Origen and the Arians could never say that the Son was homoousios, "of one nature", or "consubstantial" with the Father.

And you call Me well, for so I am,' who, hearing such language from Godand the Wisdom, and Word of the Fatherspeaking of Himself, will any longer hesitate about the truthand not immediately believe that in the phrase 'I am,' is signified that the Son is eternal and without beginning?

Athanasius in controversy with the Arians book proved by divine Scripture. This confession was later known as the Blasphemy of Sirmium. But if he shrinks from this as unseemly, and excludes God from that all, it is but consistent that he should also exclude from that all the Only-Begotten Son, as being proper to the Father's essence.

Without this, creation would vanish into nothingness in an instant. Increased strictness of life, the sanctification of homes, renewed application to prayer, and practical charity, these were a worthy welcome to their long-lost shepherd.

And yet, after all, the man of craft did not escape. And I hereby make a public order, that if someone should be discovered to have hidden a writing composed by Arius, and not to have immediately brought it forward and destroyed it by fire, his penalty shall be death.

She was hustled quickly out of the room. Next, let them tell us this — or rather learn from it how irreligious they are in saying, 'Once He was not,' and, 'He was not before His generation;'— for if the Word is not with the Father from everlasting, the Triad is not everlasting; but a Monad was first, and afterwards by addition it became a Triad; and so as time went on, it seems what we know concerning God grew and took shape.

However, that as before they may pass judgment on themselves, it is well to meet them on the same ground, thus:— Plainly, if they inquire of parents concerning their son, let them consider whence is the child which is begotten.

An Ecumenical Council was a new experiment. Not many will have the interest or the need to wade through it all. Please pray I at least pass it! There were, in fact, a lot of close calls. This is the point where human philosophy and Arianism stumbled. During this quiet period, he visited the churches throughout Egypt and also went as far as the Ethiopian frontier; he visited Saint Pachomius and his monks at Tabenna.

This notion, however, was also rejected at the Council of Nicaea, in favor of the Athanasian Creedwhich holds the Father and Son to be distinct yet also coequal, coeternal, and consubstantial divine persons.

In his seventy-fifth year, he entered upon the forty-sixth year of his episcopate.The two available references from this work are recorded by his opponent Athanasius: the first is a report of Arius's teaching in Orations Against the Arians, This paraphrase has negative comments interspersed throughout, so it is difficult to consider it as being completely magicechomusic.com: 3rd and 4th centuries AD.
