Luther Quote

“The saints (believers) are at the same time sinners while they are righteous.  They are righteous, because they believe in Christ, whose righteous covers them and is imputed to them.  But they are sinners, inasmuch as they do not fulfill the Law, and still have sinful lusts.  They are like sick people who are being treated by a physician.  They are really sick, but hope and are beginning to get, or be made, well.”
