Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Christ died for the sins of the world.  The Resurrection, then, was the Absolution for the world, the liberation of the world from the bondage of sin, the emancipation of a sin-enslaved humanity.  The Resurrection is our Absolution, our triumph, as Paul writes:  "Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification." - von Schenk, *The Presence* pp. 98,99
