luther thesis
Today is reformation day.

On this day 1517, almost 500 years ago, Martin Luther nailed his protest to the door of the church at Wittenberg, to demand that they church leaders follow the Bible truths accurately and closely, and stop all falsehood and corrupt spiritual practices.

His protest was the spark that lit up the whole of Europe, and caused the downfall of hatefulness and greed, and opened the door for everyone to hear the gospel and the opportunity to repent and believe in Christ. The thesis in themselves are not necessarily true, but they were effective because they were challenging to the theology of the day.

He was only one man, a lonely and oppressed monk, but his love for Christ overwhelmed him, and his pain drove him to speak up and do the unthinkable – challenge the received authority. Luther believed “Sola scripture” and “Sola Christos” and “Sola Fide”

God help us a his true believers to follow Luther – no, to follow Christ who cleared the temple with a whip and drove out those who used his father’s house for their own purposes…
