Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The reason so many people assume that they are really good Christians is because their parents reared them to be miserable Pharisees.  Their parents never made them aware of the fact that they are miserable sinners. -- C. F. W. Walther, Law and Gospel, p. 93.

I'll second that! Ironically even Christians fall prey to the worldly views of what is good. We need to be reminded for fear that we deceive ourselves in trusting in our own strength to be obedient to God.

since I have not yet bought the new edition, can you give me the lecture this is in so I can find the quote?
