New Lutheran Quote of the Day

But before any of that, there is the repentance that James calls for to us proud Lutherans, who can go on and on about faith while knifing one another, who do big praying, talking mostly about ourselves as the Law-fluid gathers in our lungs.  They are most surely dead who are unaware that they are dead, that they are not breathing anymore.  You only notice your breathing when there is something wrong with it.  Kyrie eleison.  Amen.  -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 219.
