"Hidden Behind a Pious Lie"

"There is actually more unity of the church present where Christians of differing confession honorably determine that they do not have the same understanding of the Gospel, than where the painful fact of confessional splintering is hidden behind a pious lie."

Lutheran theologian Hermann Sasse, from his booklet Union and Confession.

Thanks to one of my Confessional former pastors for pointing this quote out.
