Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

When the preaching of the Word is taken away, the people are stripped of the true and saving knowledge of God; they become rebellious and disobedient to God their Creator; they are idle and cease to be eager for good works; and they "are scattered like sheep not having a shepherd" (Mark 6:34). –– Blessed Johann Gerhard, On the Ministry I:6.
