New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Love is not the enemy of knowledge, but of the puffing up.  Love does not say, "you mustn't know about that."  Love is not afraid of knowledge. -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Dialog, Winter 1977, p. 139.

Christ is the Truth, but God is Love. Truth should not inbreed anger and hatred, and Love should not become an excuse for admitting falsehood either: rather, just like any good Buddhist, we should search for balance, "rightly dividing the word of truth" (and love).
