Five Myths About the Reformation

2020-10-20 | Pastor Stacey Littlefield

Reformation Sunday in the Church Calendar is now upon us. Officially, Reformation Day is October 31 and celebrated on the last Sunday of the month. It commemorates that date in 1517, when the German monk, Martin Luther, nailed his “Ninety-five Theses” (or complaints against the Church) to the door of the church at Wittenberg Castle. And, although there were other movements of reform at that time, this event is considered the official marker of all things flowing from the Protestant Reformation. While the Reformation was about many things, the thing we most often center on is Martin Luther’s two-fold contention that Scripture is our central authority and that human beings experience salvation by the grace of God and through our faith, not any works we can do to earn it. 

 

Given that Reformation Sunday is this Sunday, October 25, we thought it would be good to recommend the following article, “5 Myths About the Reformation”. We hope you find it interesting! You can read the article below.
