New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Canonical law is important for the following works: it restrains the Adamic nature which is always climbing up to God to rearrange and reorder him, and to get its hands on the brothers and sisters to rearrange them. Canonical law is authority to protect us from each other. Our wickedness is such that we will abuse each other at the slightest opportunity.—Dr. Kenneth Korby, The Pastoral Office and the Priesthood of Believers, Lord Jesus Christ, Will You Not Stay? p. 358.
