“In the eighth place, the Word of God is not rightly divided when the preacher represents contrition alongside of faith as a cause of the forgiveness of sin” (C.F.W. Walther, The Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel reproduced from the German edition of 1897 by W.H.T. Dau (St. Louis: Concordia, 1986), 2).
Obviously, now that the President has nominated Judge Roberts [press release here] for the Chief Justice position, the question is, who will be picked to fill the role for which Roberts was originally nominated?
As long as it is someone who will uphold the Constitution as written, and not how “international law” or “changing norms” would have it. Looking forward to Roberts’ confirmation hearings.
UPDATE: Confirmation hearings will begin next Monday. Watch them on C-SPAN.
