Reformation Thoughts

Reformation Thoughts

There are a lot of historical things that really fascinate me… The Civil War, the life and works of C.S. Lewis, the life and times of many notable philosophers and just about anything to do with European history.

At the top of the list, however, is the period of church and European history known as The Reformation.

Historians mark the beginning of the reformation on October 31, 1517 — the day that Martin Luther nailed a document called “The 95 Theses” to the castle church door in Wittenburg, Germany.

So in honor of Reformation Day next week, here are some Reformation Thoughts:

  • Like Martin Luther, maybe we need to actually care about biblical literacy and begin thinking of creative ways to help people read the bible for themselves.
  • Like Martin Bucer, maybe we need to try and reconcile some denominational splits and find some kind of a workable unity – in respect if not in organization.
  • Like William Tyndale, maybe we need to use newly available technology and communication methods to help spread the message of God. Tyndale used Gutenberg’s press to print bibles – maybe we need to more effectively use the internet, blogs, podcasts, video and other means at our disposal to communicate God’s truths.
  • Like John Calvin, maybe we need to take serious God’s sovereignty (God is in control) and that, like our sun and solar system, life only works when God is at the center.

Some random thoughts on Reformation… what are yours?
