Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

You see, the Word—both audible and visible—is the soul of that mystical Body, the church.  Church discipline is its strength. The care, preservation, and propagation of both of these have been committed to the minister of the church; and the legitimate administration of both of these pertains to the conversion and salvation of human beings—Blessed Johann Gerhard, On the Ministry, p. 261.
