    A Big Ask

    If anyone can recall the details of the following very vague recollection, and can link me to the relevant post, I will be very grateful.

    (I believe that CP responded when this happened)

    Someone claimed that one of the (I think it was) patristic fathers had made a particular statement. Checking the reference, I found that the claim was in fact true. Reading beyond that, the writer contradicted himself. Wider context provided an answer for the confusion – without any apparent cues to indicate what he was doing, the patristic father was presenting another person’s argument and following up with his own counter argument.

    [With so little to go on, I'm not expecting a happy result.]

    Would that have been Athanasius, in Contra Apollinarius? Can't remember why I picked that up, but I think it was due to a conversation here.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    Could 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 may be another possibility.
