New Lutheran Quote of the Day
You can confess, saying all the right words, with a heart full of love for an alternative Christ and be the mouthpiece of Satan. Seminary attempts to fill you with all the right words, and you are daily tempted to take them over, run them the way you figure they ought to run. They aren't your words to run as you may wish to make them run. They are Christ's words, and He runs them as the Christ, the Son of the living God, who goes to Calvary, identified as the Suffering Servant who makes Himself a sacrifice for sin. Yours, too - all of them. Even your satanic attempt to commandeer Him. That, too, and especially that, He would bring you to repentance of. -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 262.
