Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Our case is much different, however, from the opinion of the Donatists, for we do not say that the church has perished from all the earth nor that ours is a new church.  Furthermore, we are not censuring the corruptions of life and behavior in the Roman popes as much as the corruption of doctrine. -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, On the Church, p. 385.
