Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The commandments are not either inappropriate or purposeless, but are given in order that blind, self-confident man may through them come to know his own diseased state of impotence if he attempts to do what is commanded.  -- Blessed Martin Luther, *Bondage of the Will*
