The Reformation and Justification. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
This year marks the 500th anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation, an era that reformed the Christian faith and changed the world. It began when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the door at Wittenberg Castle church in Germany, protesting errant doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church.
Some Reformers were martyred for the biblical stance that justification is by faith alone and not by faith PLUS keeping church sacraments, like baptism.
The Bible says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works.” Ephesians 2:8-9
