Patristic Quote for the Day

Via Gerhard's *Theological Commonplaces*:

Augustine, Marcarius, and Gregory call Scripture "the letters of invitation that God has transmitted to us through holy men that invite us to our eternal fatherland." (p. 48)

Dead Orthodox Lutherans...not all bad afterall, huh?

Seriously, isn't it tragic how easily we are tempted to think that the latest pontifications from Bill Hybels and others of his ilk have some value over and above our fathers the faith?

A most grevious situation. Thanks for serving up the good stuff.
