On the way of the Lord, standing in one place and not moving forward is retreating. (Bernard) When you stop wanting to become better, then you stop being good.














The best good work is, according to divine justice, a mortal sin. (Luther) [Is.64:6; Titus 3:5] Regeneration is a work that requires no less of God's power than creation did. (Menzer) Although when taken in its proper and specific sense, renewal is distinguished from regeneration, it is nevertheless inseparable from it, and constantly linked to it. (Gerhard) Christians are not born, but made [reborn, by the Holy Spirit!]. (Kromayer) Not birth, but rebirth makes you into a Christian. Gerhard It is a good intention only when you want to obey God His way, according to His commandments. (Gerhard)
