We really enjoyed this series on the truths of the Bible, rediscovered in the Reformation.
The Reformation began in earnest, in Germany in 1517 when a man called Martin Luther pinned on the door of a church in Wittenberg 95 statements of what needed to be changed in the church, for debate. The Reformation brought accurate teaching of the Bible, for the first time for hundreds of years. Churches had moved very far away from what Jesus taught his disciples. Martin Luther read and preached the Bible in its original languages and he saw that things in the church needed to change urgently. Luther showed that the Bible said that Jesus did everything for our salvation, and we cannot doanything to earn God’s love.
