Life Quote: “[W]hen a child is adopted into a family there is a real family formed there. Our entire Gospel is at stake in that recognition because there is no such thing as an ‘adopted child,’ only children who were adopted. Adopted in the New Testament is a past-tense verb, not an adjective.” Dr. Russell D. Moore, author of “Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families” – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life · www.lutheransforlife.org #2
