Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

But what do we have in common with that heresy (the Novatian) - we who zealously encourage to serious repentance those who have fallen into even the most serious sins after Baptism?  If they bear witness of this with their words, gestures, and deeds, we lift them up with the consolation of the Gospel and announce to them the remission of their sins. -- Johann Gerhard, The Church, p. 429.
