It’s not just Halloween folks, it was 500 years ago today that the church was changed forever. It was on this day that a young priest named Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the Wittenburg church. It was the start of the protestant reformation. Let’s think seriously about what happened. A young priest started comparing the actions of the church with the teachings of Scripture and decided something needed to change. This was a bold move, one that could have cost him his life. What can we learn from this event? We believers need to be in the Word of God. We need to check teachings against the Bible. We need to follow Christ first and foremost and if anything, even the church, goes against God’s Word, we follow God and his Word first.  500 years ago today, the church was changed for all time. The church can and must stand on the Word of God, no matter what.
