I love that last paragraph. Walther's metaphor clearly explains why Law and Gospel need to be clearly preached and taught. That's what we need to hear from our pastors in every sermon. That's what teachers, administrators and even youth ministers, given the responsibility to preach God's Word in all its truth and purity, need to clarify in every chapel message they give to the young flock placed before them.
And that's exactly what I heard as I listened to Rev. Anthony R. Voltattorni's sermon based on I Corinthians 5. Rev. Voltattorni is the pastor at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Standish, Michigan.
