Conflict About Father And Son quotes - 1
The same author also wrote an account of what took place after Alexander's death, in ten books.1 He describes the sedition in the army, the proclamation of Arrhidaeus (the son of Alexander's father, Philip, by a Thracian woman named Philinna) on condition that Roxana's child, when born, if it were a son, should share the throne with him. Arrhidaeus was then again proclaimed under the name of Philip. A quarrel broke out between the infantry and the cavalry. The chief and most influential commanders of the latter were Perdiccas the son of Orontes, Leonnatus the son of Anthes, Ptolemy the son of Lagus, Lysimachus the son of Agathocles, Aristonus the son of Pisaeus, Pithon the son of Crateuas, Seleucus the son of Antiochus, and Eumenes of Cardia. Meleager was in command of the infantry. Communications passed between them, and at length it was agreed between the infantry, who had already chosen a king, and the cavalry, that Antipater should be general of the forces in Europe; that Craterus should look after the kingdom of Arrhidaeus; that Perdiccas should be chiliarch 2 of the troops which had been under the command of Hephaestion, which amounted to entrusting him with the care of the wholeempire; and that Meleager should be his lieutenant. Perdiccas, under the pretence of reviewing the army, seized the ringleaders of the disturbance, and put them to death in the presence of Arrhidaeus, as if he had ordered it. This struck terror into the rest, and Meleager was soon afterwards murdered. After this Perdiccas became the object of general suspicion and himself suspected everybody. Nevertheless, he made appointments to the governorships of the different provinces, as if Arrhidaeus had ordered him. Ptolemy, son of Lagus, was appointed governor of Egypt and Libya, and of that part of Arabia that borders upon Egypt, with Cleomenes, formerly governor of Egypt under Alexander, as his deputy. The part of Syria adjacent was given to Laomedon; Cilicia to Philotas; Media to Pithon; Cappadocia, Paphlagonia, and the country on the shore of the Euxine as far as Trapezus (a Greek colony from Sinope), to Eumenes of Cardia; Pamphylia, Lycia, and greater Phrygia to Antigonus; Caria to Cassander; Lydia to Menander; Phrygia on the Hellespont to Leonnatus. This Phrygia had formerly been given by Alexander to a certain Galas and subsequently handed over to Demarchus. Such was the distribution of Asia.

Ifï¿½faithful LDS should suggest that the Tower of Babel must have been therefore much earlier than 2200 B.C., they have the problem that Ether 1:6-33 lists the generations from Jared (who left the Tower) to the last Jaredite, and there are only 28 generations. The last surviving Jaredite (see Omni 1:21) was still alive some time after the Mulekites' arrival in America about 600 B.C. To account for 28 generations between 2200 B.C. and ca. 600 B.C., the average generation would already have to be 60 years apart. To make the "confusion of tongues" a thousand years (or more!) earlier (to account for the Chinese, Egyptians and Sumerians of ca. 4000 B.C.), every Jaredite father listed in the genealogy would have had to be over 120 years old before fathering his oldest child.

2 Appointed about 300, died about 358. He was sent by Constantine in 324 to Alexandria, on a mission to reconcile Arius and Alexander, bishop of Alexandria.

He drew up nearly all the Arian formulae.

THOSE Holy Martyrs of God, who loved our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ, andGod supreme and sovereign of all, more than themselves and their own lives, whowere dragged forward to the conflict for the sake of religion, and renderedglorious by the martyrdom of confession, who preferred a horrible death to atemporary life, and were crowned with all the victories of virtue, and offeredto the Most High and supreme God the glory of their wonderful victory, becausethey had their conversation in heaven, and walked with him who gave victory totheir testimony, also offered up glory, and honour, and majesty to the Father,and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. Moreover, the souls of the martyrs beingworthy of the kingdom of heaven are in honour together with the company of theprophets and apostles. Let us therefore, likewise, who stand in need of the aidof their prayers, and have been also charged in the book of the Apostles, thatwe should be partakers in the remembrance of the Saints,-- let us also bepartakers with them, and begin to describe those conflicts of theirs againstsin, which are at all times published abroad by the mouth of those believers whowere acquainted with them Nor, indeed, have their praises been noted by monu- !ments of stone, nor by statues variegated with painting and colours andresemblances of earthly things without life, but by the word of truth spokenbefore God: the deed also which is seen by our eyes bearing witness.

There is a large city in the land of Palestine, teeming with population, ofwhich all the inhabitants were Jews. It is called in the Aramaic tongue Lud, andin the Greek it is called Diocaesarea. To this city the governor Firmillianuswent, and took thither the whole assembly of those hundred confessors. And thiswas a great sight which well deserves to be recorded in writing. And the Jewswere spectators of this marvellous contest, having surrounded the place ofjudgment on all sides; and as if it were for a rebuke to themselves, they lookedon with their own eyes at what took place, while the whole company of theconfessors, with much confidence and immense courage, made their confession ofbelief in God's Christ. And they being Jews, to whom the coming of that Christhad been foretold by their prophets, whose coming their fathers looked for, hadnot received him when he was come; but these Egyptians, who had been of old theenemies of God, confessed, even in the midst of persecutions, their faith inGod, the Lord of all, and in the Manifestation from him. And these Egyptians,who had been taught by their fathers to worship idols only, were at that time,from the conviction of their reason, undergoing this conflict, in order thatthey might avoid the worship of idols; while those Jews, who had always beenaccused by their prophets on account of their worship of idols, were surroundingthem, standing and looking on, and listening as the Egyptians repudiated thegods of their own fathers, and confessed their faith in the same God as theyalso did; and bare witness for Him whom they had many times denied. And theywere still more cut to the heart and rent, when they heard the criers of thegovernor shouting and calling Egyptians by Hebrew names, and addressing themwith the names of the prophets. For the crier, shouting aloud, called to themand said: Elias, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, and other appellations similar tothese, which their fathers had chosen from among the Hebrews, [p. 30.] in orderthat they might call their sons after the names of the prophets. Moreover, it also came to pass that their deedscorresponded with their names; and the Jews greatly wondered both at them and attheir names, as well as at their words and their deeds, being rendereddespicable themselves both by their own vice and infidelity. And I myself amconvinced that these things were not done without the will of God. However,after this trial they were deprived of the use of their left leg, by having themuscles of the knee cauterized with fire, and then again they had their righteyes blinded with the sword, and then destroyed by fire. And not only were theymen who endured these things, but really children and many women. And after thisthey were delivered over to the copper mines to see afflictions there.
