“It is the true, living faith, which understands the words of the Gospel … that the Father sent Christ, His Son, to save the world from sin, God’s wrath, and eternal death through his blood and death. Therefore all depends on this article about Christ, . . . In order to abide by it, the Christians must be engaged in the most strenuous combat and fight continuously. · . . Other articles have been attacked, but no one has caused so much bloodshed and produced so many martyrs as this one. · .. And it will not cease as long as the world exists. Where this article is pro-claimed, there the devil is furious and insane, and the world is aflame with anger and raging.” Martin Luther

He has been privileged to travel around the world and see the churches' mercy work in action. He is convinced it is not only what we are "compelled" to do because of Christ; it is what we have been baptized for. Christ's love compels us, constrains us, and sends us forth.
