Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The problem of Church Union will be solved only by holding firmly to the pure faith of the Gospel, once delivered to the saints, and heartily uniting with all who upon the basis of this pure faith, and for the sake of advancing this pure faith, thankfully accept and appropriate everything developed in the Church's experience, that is not contrary to God's Word. With purity of teaching guarded in other respects the rule applies: "Submitting to one another in the fear of God," Eph. 5:21 - Henry E. Jacobs, *Elements of Religion* p. 215
