Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Therefore, whoever has trusted in a Christ who would allow him to remain in his sins yet come into heaven without repentance, without conversion, without sanctification, and without self-denial needs to know that there is no such Christ. -- C. F. W. Walther, *God Grant It!* p. 889

Also from His thirteenth evening lecture in Proper Distinction: For a Christ who died for sinners, who, after receiving forgiveness, will not quit thier sins nor lead a new life, is worthless and does not exist. (Dau translation, p. 121).
