Circumspective vs. Perspective

Church ceases to be a venue for fairy tales and bedtime stories, but rather a haven for sufferers. Church is the place where we come together to hear and tell the truth about our lives, our sin, and to receive grace and mercy. As Luther poignantly said, ‘If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear a true, not an imaginary sin. God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners.’
— R.J. Heijmen
