Whether you are Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist, Nondenominational, or Roman Catholic, the modern beliefs and traditions of our varied churches stem from those Reformation events that occurred over 500 years ago. October 31, 2017 will mark the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his Ninety-Five Theses on Indulgences to the Wittenberg church door. His simple act unwittingly launched the Protestant Reformation, starting a movement of thanksgiving for the goodness of God and creating an environment more receptive to new ideas.
Before the Reformation, when the Catholic Church was unchallenged, there was one official version of religious truth. With the advent of the Reformation, it became OK to ask questions about faith and the meaning of life.
People began to ask, “What is true” and “How do we know it’s true?” They had been told for centuries that the Roman Catholic Church was the only true church.
The Reformation led to creativity in the arts, freedom in government, and discoveries in science. These ideas, including the concept of religious freedom, sailed from Europe to the New World, with the Pilgrims, Puritans and other early settlers of America who wanted a home where they could worship as they saw fit.
Dr. Peter Lillback, President of Westminster Theological Seminary, is the host of this new video series. Filmed on location in Europe, Dr. Lillback guides us through a study of the people, places, and teachings of the Reformation.
