The Reformation and the Lutheran Church: Sermons and Addresses by American Lutheran Pastors

“We have certainly great reason to be wide awake and watchful, if we would preserve the inheritance of the Lutheran Church Reformation. Strong are the delusions and temptations of these latter days, and you children and youthful Christians will doubtless see still more perilous times for the Church of Jesus Christ before you have grown old.

“If in the previous century men began to pick the old Bible to pieces, they will in the new century want a restated gospel. I charge you to remember that it is the old Gospel which saves and it alone. However far men may yet progress in earthly knowledge, they can never invent a new gospel which could save the soul of a single sinner.

“When the popes deprived the world of the Bible it fell into superstition, and if the nations will no more heed the old Bible they must again become steeped in pernicious error and wickedness; for the Bible alone is the true and effectual safeguard against superstition and error. It is the light which God has given us to guide our feet in the way of truth and right. Heed this light and it will enlighten you unto eternal life through Jesus Christ. Amen.” — From “A Sure Word of Prophecy” by Rev. F. Kuegele
