Evangelical preachers are like the man trying to convince the shop owner tha the parrot is dead except we’re trying to talk about the law – it’s dead it’s finished. Yeah we’re surrounded by people who tell us we need to get back to the law because we live in a world now that has said that there is no law. For the law always will raise it’s head and even those who have done away with the law will be legalistic. It wasn’t enough that we should love our neighbors as ourselves but now we have to feel guilt over white privilege; we need to take reeducation courses about how to talk to women and we have to tear everything down in order build something up whose outlines are hideous

Rev. Bernhard Seter has been a Pastor in the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod for over 42 years. He served on the Board of LCMS World Relief and Human Care for ten years and is now the Chairman of the Board of International Missions. 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.
