“Aside from the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the birth of the Church at Pentecost, The Reformation is the single most important event in the last 2000 Years.”
On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg and sparked The Reformation. This year marks the 500th year anniversary of The Reformation and in order commemorate that day we are airing 6 1-hour episodes talking about the History of the Reformation and the theology that was rediscovered through the Reformation.
Each program will air on Saturday at 1pm and Sunday at 5pm through November 18th.
- Episode 1: The History of the Reformation
On Episode 1 we are focusing on the history of the reformation. What is the Reformation? How did it begin? Why was it necessary? Why does it matter to us today?
- Episode 2: Sola Scriptura
On today's program we are focusing on the first of the 'five Solas', Sola Scriptura. How did Sola Scriptura come to be a point of contention between Luther and the Roman Church? Why is this important? What would it look like if we really believed Sola Scriptura?
- Episode 3: Sola Gratia
On Episode 3 we are focusing on the second of the five Solas, "Sola Gratia" or "by Grace Alone". Now don't Roman Catholics believe we are saved by grace as well? What's the distinction? Why can grace, the unmerited favor of God, be so despised?
- Episode 4: Sola Fide
On Episode 4 we are focusing on Sola Fide or 'by Faith Alone'. What did the Roman Church teach about how one is saved? What did Martin mean by 'Faith Alone'? How does God justify the ungodly?
- Episode 5: Solus Christus
On Episode 5 we are focusing on Solus Christus. We are saved by Christ Alone.
- Episode 6: Soli Deo Gloria
On Episode 5 we are focusing on Soli Deo Gloria. The basic sin of humanity is to not give God the glory to his name. Every one of our righteous motivations should be done for the 'Glory to God Alone'.
