A Fire You Know Nothing About – Lex Loizides Unleashed

A Fire You Know Nothing About – Lex Loizides Unleashed September 23, 2008

Finally unleashed from the confines of Facebook, a new blog by Lex Loizides has been born. It’s so good that I’m granting it an instant Warnie, an honor last achieved so quickly by the Pyromaniac himself! From now on you can follow Lex as he shares bite-sized chunks of church history by the links which will appear in the Warnie box in my sidebar. Here is an excerpt to whet your appetite:

Polycarp, with his face set, looked at all the crowd in the stadium and waved his hand toward them, sighed, looked up to heaven, and cried, “Away with the godless!” The Governor pressed him, “Swear, and I will set you free; execrate [curse or, revile] Christ.”

“For eighty-six years,” replied Polycarp, “I have been His servant, and He has never done me wrong. How can I blaspheme my king who saved me?”

“I have wild beasts,” said the proconsul, “and if you make light of the wild beasts, I’ll have you destroyed by fire.”

Polycarp answered, “The fire you threaten burns for a time and is soon extinguished; there is a fire you know nothing about – the fire of the judgment to come and of eternal punishment, the fire reserved for the ungodly. But why do you hesitate? Do what you want.” Polycarp, the Aged Martyr by Lex Loizides
