Why I am Reformed
Today marks the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. On Oct. 31, 1517, Luther nailed his 95 Thesis to the door at the Wittenburg Church. Below are the five ‘solas’ [latin: alone] that are the purest of fruit from the reformation. Here is a very briefly explanation of each:
1. Scripture Alone!
I’m blessed to read the Bible in English & trust its authority over the church’s / pope’s.
2. The Glory of God Alone!
God is pleased when I seek to glorify Him in every part of my life — every part.
3. Christ Alone!
Thankfully, as believers, we have direct access to God thru’ Christ, not other priests.
4. Grace Alone!
Salvation is free! No need to light candles for the dead or pay $$ to be free from purgatory.
5. Faith Alone!
Justification from sin is NOT in from work that I do, but ONLY in who Jesus is & what He did!
