Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The faith of the Church now is identical to what it was in the Apostolic time, but the relation of identity does not preclude growth—it only excludes change of identity. That faith must always be its essential self... In a word, the advances are wrought, not by change in the Church's faith, but by the perpetual activity of that faith.—C. P. Krauth, Conservative Reformation, p. 270.
