ROMANS 3:19-28

In the use of the sacrament, it is faith, not the outward use of the sacrament, that makes us pious before God. (Apology A.C.) 7pm Bible Study In general, nothing that belongs to the Word of the gospel is to be denied the sacraments, since the sacraments are the visible Word. (Gerhard) A single thing has various aims. (Apology [Defense] of the Augsburg Confession)















Faith is just as much a result of the sacraments as it is the instrument by which they are received. (Quenstedt) The sacraments are identifiers of one's confession. (Wittenberg) You must not pass off subordinate aims as the primary aim, nor set them in opposition to it. (Gerhard) God has bound human beings, not Himself, to the arrangement. (Kromayer) That which has been instituted to provide grace is binding for the one who wants to be saved, not for the One Who saves. (Scherzer)
