ATHENAGORAS: DIVORCE, ABORTION, FREE-WILL

This early Christian wrote his "The Apology" in 176 a.d.
On second marriage, "calls it a 'respectable form of adultery,' or a "decent adultery,"
On abortion, "He says, 'We call it murder and say it will be accountable to God if women use instruments to procure abortion.'"
On free will, "Freedom faces us with responsibility so we are judged for every action. If man falls into evil, he is judged, and thrown into the fire of eternity as his spirit does not vanish, and if he follows God, he lives in the heavenly eternity."
