I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Melanchthon: The Gospel Teaches That By Faith We Receive Freely, For Christ's Sake, The Remission of Sins And Are Reconciled to God



"The Gospel teaches that by faith we receive freely, for Christ's sake, the remission of sins and are reconciled to God." Apology of the Augsburg Confession, XV. #5. Human Traditions, Concordia Triglotta, St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1921, p. 317. Tappert, p. 215. Heiser, p. 96.       

"Truly, it is amazing that the adversaries are in no way moved by so many passages of Scripture, which clearly ascribe justification to faith, and, indeed, deny it to works. Do they think that the same is repeated so often for no purpose? Do they think that these words fell inconsiderately from the Holy Ghost? But they have also devised sophistry whereby they elude them." Apology Augsburg Confession, IV. #107. Justification. Concordia Triglotta, St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1921, p. 153. Tappert, p. 122. Heiser, p. 41.
