Happy Reformation Day!
Today is not about Halloween. Today, it’s all about the Reformation!
On this day in 1517 a German monk named Martin challenged church leaders over how to deal with sin when he nailed the 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg church. (You can’t buy forgiveness!)
I thank God for Martin Luther and the other Reformers and their courage to challenge the church back to the Word as its authority.
Sola scriptura (by Scripture alone)
Sola fide (by Faith alone)
Sola gratia (by Grace alone)
Solo Christos (by Christ alone)
Soli Deo Gloria (Glory to God alone)
May we be so bold.
