More Bucer

"From this we must go on to learn how harmful and pernicious those people are who teach that this ministry of the church is of no importance, a merely outward activity which does not contribute in any particular way to our salvation, and without which it is quite possible to become a Christian and receive God's gifts. The Lord, they say, must inwardly teach his own, washing and purifying them, giving them new birth, feeding and strengthening them and leading them on in all good things."

Nothing new under the sun, is there?
