Happy Reformation Month!

The month of October is unique to Christians and historically to all churches. For one thing, this is the month that we celebrate our Protestant Reformation heritage. Unfortunately, more and more the people of this generation are becomingly disconnected to past history. This is especially tragic when people in the church are so disconnected to biblically, theologically, and missiologically rich history of the past. However, we must all remember that we didn’t just get here out of nowhere. Rather, we are the beneficiaries of many men and women of the past who have given their lives for the gospel so that we can enjoy the fruit of their labor today. As a saying goes, “The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church.” This October marks the 496th anniversary of Martin Luther’s “95-Theses” he posted on the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany (1517), which helped fuel the movement of “protesting” against the Roman Catholic Church’s dogmas and practices; hence, the name Protestant Reformation.
