Quote from Walther

March 31, 2008

“Whether our Synod gains friends or makes enemies, wins honor or invites disgrace, grows or declines in numbers, brings peace or incites enmity, all this must be unimportant to us–just so our Synod may keep the jewel of purity of doctrine and knowledge. However, should our Synod ever grow indifferent toward purity of doctrine, through ingratitude forget this prize, or betray or barter it away to the false church, then let our church body perish and the name ‘Missourian’ decay in disgrace,” (First Sermon Delivered at the Opening of Synod, based on 1 Corinthians 1:4-5).

It is good to remember that while Christ will never allow His Church to die, that doesn’t mean that the LCMS never will.

Kyrie Eleison.
