Modern Lutheran Quote of the Day

Now nothing is so completely in antagonism to God as sin. Ignorance is the counterpart to divine knowledge and wisdom; weakness to divine omnipotence; but sin is set against the very heart and moral glory of God. The ignorant and the weak may be children of God, ad bear his image, but the sinful are sundered from Him by an impassable gulf; though they had the knowledge of an archangel, and a might as near that of God as the creature’s might can be, yet with sin, their image is that of the Devil, and not that of God.

Charles Porterfield Krauth
