New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The "we" speaking the confession can, then, be a larger or a smaller group.  It can include the whole Christian church - all Christians have made Peter's confession their own - or a larger or smaller part of the same.  But also in this case the confession, if it is a genuine churchy confession, is expressed with the conviction that truth is being stated which has validity for all Christendom. -- Hermann Sasse, *We Confess: Jesus Christ* p. 80.
