Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

For because the Church is universal, God has always raised up in various places those who have given a confession which is in agreement with the sound understanding of the true doctrine in order to strengthen coming generations.  Good minds are greatly strengthened when they see that the same expression of doctrine has sounded forth in the church in all ages, especially because the adversaries complain loudly that our teaching does not have the witness of the ancient church but is a recent fabrication.  -- Blessed Martin Chemnitz, Loci I:47
