New Lutheran Quote of the Day
It is not enough, therefore, to understand heterodoxy only or mainly psychologically, in terms of human ignorance, ambition, illusion, or even malice. These are trifles compared to the super-human malignities that lurk behind and exploit them in constant counter-thrusts against the saving work of God. Not flesh and blood are the real enemy, but "principalities and power," against which no human ingenuity avails but only the armory of God.—Prof. Kurt Marquart, The Church, p. 67.
