Athanasius: The Patron Saint of Postmilleniallism

Athanasius’ On The Incarnation:

Since the Savior’s Advent in our midst, not only does idolatry no longer increase, but it is getting   less and gradually ceasing to be…while idolatry and everything else that opposes the faith of Christ is daily dwindling and weakening and falling, see, the Savior’s teaching is increasing everywhere!

So also, now that the Divine epiphany of the Word of God has taken place, the darkness of idols prevails no more, and all parts of the world in every direction are enlightened by His teaching.[1]

[1] Athanasius, Sec. 55, quoted in Mathison, pg. 29.

  3. Wow, there is a lot of Context to Athanasius Eschatology missing here. I don’t for example see how a Post-Millenialist would be calling Constantius II the forerunner of the Antichrist.
