New Lutheran Quote of the Day
According to the doctrine of the resurrection, death is not simply the passing of the soul from one form of existence to another, as in India and among the Greeks (although it is that too), but death is the abhorrent disintegration of a human being. This way of looking at things does not making dying easy, but hard. The aim of the philosophical doctrine of the immortality is to make dying easy, but the doctrine of the resurrection takes death with complete seriousness. -- Hermann Sasse, *We Confess: Jesus Christ* p. 19.
