Obstacles, Offenses and Absurdities

Christians must be taught to see themselves not as whimsical patrons or "customers" of the church, waiting to be pleased and pampered, but as sons and daughters of the living God, "like newborn babies" craving for the Source of Life in Word and Sacrament, despite all the obstacles, offences, and absurdities of men.

Rev. Dr. Kurt E. Marquart, Anatomy of an Explosion: A Theological Analysis of the Missouri Synod Conflict, Pg. 72
