Important Views

It is no secret I'm an enormous fan of N.T. Wright, Bishop of Durham. But I also am very aware of many of the controversies regarding his views on Justification. This week the Euangelion website had Michael Horton's review of Wright's book on Justification. It is very, very good. I encourage you to read it.

It is also Reformation Day, the 492nd anniversary of the posting of Martin Luther's 95 thesis. I've said in the past that this is a sad day as it is a day that began all the church splits we've seen since then. But, it is also a day when one man, followed by others, had the guts to stand up against the sins and evils practiced by the Roman church at that time and say "ENOUGH!" Luther didn't want to split from Rome but truth was more important than error. Some stayed with Rome and began the Counter Reformation which continues today with marvelous Catholics who strive for truth. But today, we remember the man who stood in the face of error and, for all his own personal faults, can be considered a saint to remember Sunday on All Saints Day. Thank you Martin.
Listen to a marvelous presentation of A Mighty Fortress Is Our God sung by Steve Green at The Gospel Driven Church website. It will send chills up and down your spine.
