Hello friends, it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here, but I need some help with something.
I have ran into Octavius, allegedly written by Minucius Felix (A 2nd/3rd century christian apologist), Ch 9 which would appear to condemn the worship of a man dieing on a cross for his wickedness. This is apparently used by the mysticism movement and anti-christians as a club over the head for catholics/christians.
I was wondering if someone could bring some light to his wording.
“he who explains their ceremonies by reference to a man punished by extreme suffering for his wickedness, and to the deadly wood of the cross, appropriates fitting altars for reprobate and wicked men, that they may worship what they deserve.”
