New Lutheran Quote of the Day

There is nobody and nothing that can stand the strain of being treated as God except God Himself... Idols make slaves to our ruin.  They all break under the strain of being treated as God, then those who rely on them break with them. -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 341.

I don't have the Scriptures in front of me now, but this sounds like that psalm which says about idols: "Those who worship them become like them."

Good stuff. Thanks for these great quotes.
