New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Adiaphora has come to mean, or so it seems, that these things have no significance, no import. Such an understanding of adiaphora is misleading. Things like liturgy, music, vestments, buildings, translations, church government have a great deal of import. To call these adiaphora is to say, "They are neither commanded nor forbidden by God, and therefore they are subject to human reason, human choice, human judgment." However, the import of these various adiaphora lies in what they expression of our doctrine and life, and what they protect or cultivate.—Dr. Kenneth Korby, The Pastoral Office and the Priesthood of Believers, Lord Jesus Christ, Will You Not Stay?, p. 368.
