Walther Quote of the Day

“Why does death reign as the king of terrors in the world? It mercilessly takes the child from the cradle and from the mother’s breast. It tears one spouse from the other and the father from his children. Death, from the beginning of time until this hour, ceaselessly stalks among humanity like an angel of vengeance, sparing neither the palace nor the hut, overlooking no one. This is another irrefutable proof that all people, by nature, are sinners and therefore children of death by God’s righteous anger. Moses proclaims: ‘For we are brought to an end by Your anger; by Your wrath we are dismayed. … Who considers the power of Your anger, and Your wrath according to the fear of You?’ (Psalm 90:7. 11).”
