    So presumably they have no objection to the use of the phrase "illegal alien" if the speaker is motivated by charity. Do they have an objection to charitable giving motivated by uncharity in its many...

    I would have to see what “modernised meaning” is intended first.

    IMHO, it would be better to say something along the lines of “God is at work even in calamities”.

    I think it is important to avoid speaking of events as though all of them were related in the...

    oCould the reference be to Origen’s “Against Celsus” ? He quotes long selections from Celsus, in order to discuss them. Origen is probably one of the more widely-read Fathers. Clement of Alexandria...
