By what authority do our pastors do their work? By what authority does the government do their work? The Church has full authority from the Lord to give a clear conscience to burdened sinners simply through the preaching the Gospel and administrating the sacraments. This authority does not mean that there is no need for good order or that Christians should not be involved in government, but we need constant exhortation for the Church to be faithful stewards of His mysteries. “The Church’s one foundation Is Jesus Christ, her Lord; She is His new creation, By water and the Word. From heav’n He came and sought her, To be His holy bride; With His own blood He bought her, And for her life He died.” LSB #644 st. 1
