    in the holy church there is no such thing as plagerism when it is about Jesus and his grace. plagerize freely and with a pure conscience!

    this sermon handled an area that is problematic even for most Lutherans with great lucidity. thanks for this Dr Vieth! I needed to hear this today. I have not been feeling alot like a “good person”. the opposite of sin is faith!
