Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

God himself also says in Ezek. 3[:18] that if the preacher does not condemn the error and sin of those whom he teaches, God will lay the loss of their souls to his account. Such a verdict God pronounced upon that kind of preacher who comforts the people and says much about faith and the forgiveness of sins but nothing about penitence or the fear and judgment of God. - Blessed Martin Luther Instruction to Visitors of the Saxon Churches
