Is the Reformation Over?

Someone has said that for many Christians, church history began with the first Billy Graham crusade. They think that as long as we derive our beliefs from the Bible, we can ignore the two-thousand year history of God’s people. Church history, they reason, really only benefits scholars and historians. What possible relevance could the past have for the present? How easy it is to forget that we are heirs of a rich history that began in the New Testament and continues on to this present day. To study church history is to study the ways of God; it is to … Read More >

European Reformation: Luther And The Struggle For Salvation

When Martin Luther entered the Augustinian monastery, he had one goal—and that was the salvation of his soul. The picture above shows the altar where he performed his first mass, and in front of it is a gravestone upon which he knelt to say his vows of obedience and chastity. Also, I’ve included a picture of the last monastic cell in which he stayed in Erfurt, Germany. Luther was terror stricken at the thought of Christ as Judge. He sought to lay hold of every means of grace that was available to him. He knew he could never get to … Read More >

Happy Birthday to the Reformation

The Protestant Reformation is 500 years old today! On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. He didn’t know he was beginning a movement that would still be celebrated 500 years later. Like a man who pulled a stone out of a mountain and began an avalanche, this simple act exposing some of the abuses of the church began a chain of events that has affected us all, whether Protestant or Catholic. These theses were originally written in Latin but were quickly translated into German, and thanks to … Read More >

European Reformation: From Here The World Changed Forever

The picture above is of the Wittenberg door, where Luther nailed his 95 Theses. As you might guess, the door is not original, for the wooden door used during Luther’s time was burned in a fire during the Thirty Years War. Replacing it is a metal door, with the 95 Theses ingrained in Latin. Above it is Luther kneeling with an open Bible before the crucified Christ, and Melanchthon kneels with a copy of the Augsburg Confession. Luther had come to Wittenberg as a professor, deeply troubled, and overcome with guilt and a sense of alienation from God. He had … Read More >
