Law and Gospel

Give the law to satisfied sinners.
Give the gospel to terrified sinners.

C.F.W. Walther, The Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel
1. The Law must be preached to secure sinners.
2. The Gospel must be preached to terrified sinners.

    Don’t water it down so it’s managable…do-able as does so much of the church.
