More On Martyrs: Origen
Origen is the father of Christian Universalism. He was denied sainthood by the catholic church and his most famous doctrine is looked down upon by most modern Christians. Yet he suffered terrible torture in the name of Christ. He never wavered in his faith. He died not long after his release from prison, due to the injuries caused by the torture. Could any deny he was a true martyr? If so, why? What is the difference between his eclectic Christianity and those of the Coptic Christians so many evangelical Christians are seeking to 'claim' right now? See also: my last post.
