After rambling through a wonderful post from Joel (which I highly recommend) I came away with a quote that really stuck in my brain. I guess that as much as things change, they really stay the same in many ways. It still applies today.
Cursed be that love and unity which cannot be preserved except at the peril of the Word of God.
Indeed. There are some things Martin Luther said that I wouldn’t agree with at all (his views on the Jews were totally warped) but this is just excellent. Amen and amen.
