It’s Reformation Day, the day Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses to the door of Wittenberg Church. So here are some articles and resources related to the Reformation. Continue reading
Everyone’s heard of Martin Luther, but what about William Tyndale? Tyndale was the Englishman who lived in exile and died a martyr’s death trying to give the English a Bible in their own language. Continue reading
It makes sense to begin these few posts about the Reformers with the most well-known: Martin Luther. But before that, I’d like to say that my intention here is not to revere these men. They were all men. Sinners, just like the rest of us. But I think it is important to remember them and the impact they had on Christianity by God’s grace. Continue reading
Although I do not consider myself Reformed in the theological sense of the word (I share some of those views, but not all of them), I still look upon the Protestant Reformation with gratitude for the men God used to fight for truth, for the recovery of the gospel and especially the principle of the Bible being the “ultimate authority” for Christians (Sola Scriptura).

But it certainly is unbiblical, and a recent Warren update and sermon review from Chris Rosebrough’s Fighting for the Faith get to the very root of the problem: a faulty premise. Continue reading
Today’s broadcast of Stand Up for the Truth discusses the recent news that came out regarding Steven Furtick and Elevation Church and a rather disturbing coloring book for the children of that church. I think Mike and Amy did a job of treating this with the gravity it deserves and Godly attitudes. Listen here. Continue reading
