    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    It was pretty polluted bathwater. You could almost say that he was, in today's language, draining the swamp.

    In an era when Church and State were often inseparable that was almost impossible to avoid.

    A friend of mine who is a Baptist minister has suggested that it seems inappropriate to celebrate, but rather that it should be a time for solemn reflection. I tend to agree.

    For it is not wise to ask such questions. - Ecclesiastes 7:10

    Yes. A time for solemn reflection on how grateful we should be to God for bringing us out of so much error into truth.

    And I am not getting into that with anybody here.

    Our local Lutheran congregation is having quite an internal squabble as the leadership has decided to celebrate this event with a 5 oz commemorative beer at the conclusion of their Church service. Good thing they are no longer using our building!

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
