Happy Reformation Day!

Happy Reformation Day!  On this day in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Thesis to the church door in Wittenberg in Germany and launched the Protestant Reformation.  As Arminians, we are children of the Reformation!  Arminius comes from a long line of great Reformers in the Church including Luther, Calvin, Tyndale, Knox, and many others.

I pray to God that He raises up more reformers who call the Church back to the Word of God and to the true doctrine of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

Happy Reformation Day!

Today, October 31, is Reformation Day!  On this day in 1517 Martin Luther took his 95 Thesis and posted them on the church door at Wittenberg in Germany.  The hope of Luther that day was to call the Catholic Church to reform and move away from unbiblical traditions and back to the Bible.  Luther later would develop his theology in regard to justification by faith as opposed to good works to obtain righteousness.

We owe must to the bravery of Martin Luther and his willingness to call the Church to reformation.  In many ways, the Church today still needs to be reformed.  Arminius felt the same way in his day as he called the Reformed Church in his day to embrace the Word of God above the creeds of men.  Arminius felt that many theologians in his day were adhering to creeds and were interpreting Scripture based on the creeds and not sound exegesis.  I agree.  All of us, both Arminians and Calvinists and all in-between, need to embrace the Bible as the inerrant and infallible Word of God and abide by its teachings first and foremost.  Granted that all of us are fallen creatures (Romans 3:23) but we should seek to be faithful to the Word of God despite our own failures and lack of knowledge of all things (2 Timothy 2:15).

Praise God for Reformation Day!
