A Syllogism to Remember

"In the eighteenth century Lutheran theologians argued about the propriety of using syllogisms in theology. Well, here is one Pauline syllogism which you can and ought to use often: Christ came to save sinners; I am a sinner; therefore, Christ came to save me. To be a recipient of Christ's salvation you need only qualify as a sinner."

--Robert Preus, Preaching to Young Theologians, Klemet Preus, ed. (St. Louis: The Luther Academy, 1999) p. 47.
