500th Anniversary of the Reformation
On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther published 95 theses (criticisms) of the Catholic Church practice of selling indulgences. Although he intended to reform Catholicism, not break it apart, he accomplished both. On the 500th anniversary of his act of conscientious defiance, it is important to review how that moment changed the world religiously, economically, politically, socially, and intellectually. The upheaval stretched into every fabric of society, exceeding anything Martin Luther could anticipate. So widespread of an effect proclaims God’s hand was involved. To learn more about this important event, check out the short video below.
In honor of the day, Pastor Steve posted copies of all 95 theses to the door of ACC for people to read as they walked into church.
