Old Lutheran Quote of the Day
Moreover, the promises of the Law require perfect obedience as is said in the first commandment: "I will do good to those who love me" [cf. Deut. 5:10]. But the evangelical promise - about remission of sins, justification, and the gift of eternal life - is gratuitous, offered on account of Christ, without a condition of our merits or our worthiness. -- Philip Melanchthon, Romans, p. 22.
