Who Said That?

"Papias supplies other stories that had reached him by word of mouth, along with some other strange parables and unknown teachings of the Savior, as well as other legendary accounts.  Among them he says that after the resurrection of the dead there will be a thousand year period when the kingdom of Christ will be established on this earth in material form.  I suppose that he got these notions by misunderstanding the apostolic accounts, not realizing that they used mystic and symbolic language.  For he was a man of very limited intelligence as is clear from his books."

Oh, that is classic, and deliciously catty.

I'm not too big a fan of Papias either. There's one thing in common.

"For he was a man of very limited intelligence as is clear from his books"

Sounds like Reformation era rhetoric. Just a guess, everybody's favorite wit, Luther?

Totally off subject, but check out the latest CBD catalogue, p. 51. Some wiseacre at CBD has a good grasp of strategic placement of ads. Check out the book directly below Joel Osteen's "It's Your Time."

JO's <strike>sermons</strike> peptalks are 23 minutes?

(seriously, that's one depressing catalog to peruse.)

It is turned around now- the premillenialists accuse us amillenialists of having limited intelligence. It seems that the foundational ideas of premillenialism have been around a lot longer than when premillenialism become the majority report in the Christian Church.

It sounds more early (ancient or early medieval) Church era than Reformational era to me but I have no idea who said it. How about Augustine or Athanasius?
