Old Lutheran Quote of the Day
Yet it must follow that the truth of teaching, not antiquity of time, is a mark of the church and that the truth of a church must be evaluated on the basis of the truth of its teaching, which is something like the "soul" of antiquity, without which antiquity is a corpse lacking a soul. The true antiquity is that which has to do with the "Ancient of Days", which has a divine origin, and which has truth of teaching connected to it. -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, On the Church, p. 301.
