New Lutheran Quote of the Day

You can confess, saying all the right words, with a heart full of love for an alternative Christ and be the mouthpiece of Satan.  Seminary attempts to fill you with all the right words, and you are daily tempted to take them over, run them the way you figure they ought to run.  They aren't your words to run as you may wish to make them run.  They are Christ's words, and He runs them as the Christ, the Son of the living God, who goes to Calvary, identified as the Suffering Servant who makes Himself a sacrifice for sin.  Yours, too - all of them.  Even your satanic attempt to commandeer Him.  That, too, and especially that, He would bring you to repentance of. -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 262.

OFF TOPIC: Bill, Here's an interesting definition of heaven I ran into today:
"I had a fellow (ex-drinker, ex-smoker) tell me that he thought heaven would be where he could smoke one Camel cigarette and have one shot of Wild Turkey on Saturday evening and not think about either for the rest of the week. For governments, inflation is sort of like that. "

Anyway, this is your brother-in-law. Could you email me your current email address.
