How Christians Will Know They Can Join Hands With Rome

by Eric Davis

 

“With Reformation Day coming up, this is a good time to recall why the Reformers departed from Roman Catholicism. In our day especially, it seems that many Christians have history-amnesia when it comes to the importance of what God did through the Reformers. During the Reformation, great confusion existed regarding what was, and was not, the true church of Christ. Rome had asserted itself as the true church for centuries, and continues to do so today. However, as the Reformers recognized then, Christians must follow in step today by recalling that joining hands with Rome is a departure from Christ.

To be clear, this is not to say that everyone who sits in a Roman Catholic church is not a Christian. What it is saying is that several changes must occur before Roman Catholicism, by the book, can be considered biblical Christianity. And the men and women of the Reformation understood this, hence their necessary break with Rome. In their case, and ours, joining Christ necessitates breaking with Rome and coming under Christ means coming out from under Rome.”

What Is Reformation Day All About?

“On Friday, (this past Friday) much of the culture will be focused on candy and things that go bump in the night. Protestants, however, have something far more significant to celebrate on October 31. Friday is Reformation day, which commemorates what was perhaps the greatest move of God’s Spirit since the days of the Apostles. But what is the significance of Reformation Day, and how should we consider the events it commemorates?”

Happy Reformation Day!

This is in remembrance of the day, in which God began a movement through a German Monk, which resulted in the Bible being placed back into the hands of the people.

Happy Reformation Day

Happy Reformation Day everyone. It was this day in the year 1517 that Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenburg. He posted these theses in Latin, which was not the common language of the people. He did this in order to discuss the abuses of selling indulgences and he wanted to discuss this with other scholars. The church door acted as a community board. But Martin Luthers students saw his theses and took them and printed them out. Within two weeks the whole country had heard or read about Martin Luther’s complaints and thus the Reformation began.

You can read more about this on my website www.reformedontheweb.com under the link Links to the Reformers.

This week I will again postpone my post until the AT&T network can get straightened out.
