Happy Reformation Day!

On this day in 1517 a Bible professor named Martin Luther posted 95 objections to the sale of indulgences on the door of the Wittenberg cathedral in Saxony: pieces of paper sold with the promise of forgiveness of sins by the Pope. This event is known as the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, which restored the church to faith in Jesus Christ alone as he is revealed in his word.

Today let us rejoice in God’s deliverance of his Church, and pray for those whose faith is yet in bondage to the traditions of men.

The photo attached doesn’t accurately depict Luther’s intent in posting the 95 theses, but perhaps its effect.
