Reformation Day

The last Sunday of October is recognized by Bible-believing Christians as Reformation Day. Most Christians are unaware that Reformation Day exists and have a scant understanding of the Protestant Reformation which it honors. Yet, our ignorance is our loss. The Reformation was a time when vital doctrines of Scripture were “rediscovered.” Men such as Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli and William Tyndale led men away from the dead traditions of Roman Catholicism and to the life-giving truths of Scripture. Luther especially took the lead in these battles, and Reformation Day is a reminder of his famous “95 Theses” which decried the abuses of the Roman Catholic Church and which he publicly displayed on the door of the Wittenberg Church on October 31, 1517.

The key doctrines of the Reformation are…
* Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone)
* Sola Fide (Faith Alone)
* Sola Gratia (Grace Alone)

Praise the Lord for the heritage that is ours through the Protestant Reformation! The men God used were far from perfect, but we see farther and more clearly only because we stand on their shoulders. What a blessing it would be to you and your family to determine to learn of God’s workings in the lives of these and others who have gone before us!
