The Next 500: The New Reformation
On October 31, 1517, a little-known priest named Martin Luther wrote down 95 grievances that he had with the Catholic Church and nailed them on the front door of the church in Wittenburg, Germany. This move sparked what we know as the Protestant Reformation. "The Reformation" was a rediscovery of the major beliefs of orthodox Christianity. This year, 2017, marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
Historians have noted that about every 500 years the Church goes through a significant shift that results in social and cultural movements of historic proportions. We are experiencing such a shift in spirituality and Christian life in our day. Yet through it all, the Church remains the most resilient movement on the planet because it finds its roots in Scripture and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The "New Reformation" that is critical in our day calls us back to a biblical and orthodox Christian faith. As we celebrate the Reformation throughout the month, we will discover the "New Reformation" that is needed in our minds and hearts for today – and for the next 500 years.
