Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

As we were rescued out of the pit of tragedy and misery into which we had been shoved by sin, we must with the most intense effort guard ourselves that we do not again fall into it through conscious, deliberate sin; and, that we do not with cocky security, unrepentance, and godlessness saddle our shoulders with both temporal and eternal punishments. -- Johann Gerhard, *Schola Pietatis* p. 182
