Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

There are Christians in denominations, but denominationalism is not Christianity. Men are Christians in spite of that which creates denominationalism, not in consequence of it. No concession to denominationalism can stand on New Testament grounds. -- C. P. Krauth, *Documentary History of the General Council* p. 366, 367

The quote could be applied today as well to the phenomenon called "non-denominationalism."

How true! "Nondenominational" is simply a lie wherever you see it. To prove that, just go in and attempt to teach Lutheran doctrine and see what sort of welcome you receive. It's the new and in vogue name for "Arminian Baptist."
