Soli Deo Gloria (To God Alone Be Glory)

Reformation Day is complicated, even after 500 years of celebrating it.  You see, I have many Christian friends who worship in the Roman Catholic Church.  For them, it is a familiar worship tradition, a family where they feel at home with Christ, and a place where they learn about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Reformation and Christ Alone (Solus Christus)

In a big box world of dime-a-dozen gods that we can custom-build to our own specifications, Solus Christus (Christ Alone) remains the stone the builders reject and the capstone (Psalm 118:22) of the Christian faith, even among the 5 Solas of the Reformation.  Gospel Coalition writer Stephen Wellum states it this way in Lose Christ, […]

The Word.  For Martin Luther it was paramount, Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone).  And it was imperative that the people of God should have access to it.  God is present in His Word. To separate the people from the Word of God was to separate people from knowing their God.  God’s divinely inspired Word, Scripture alone, […]

Reformation and the Natural Law of Unintended Consequences

While other people are buying costumes to wear and going door-to-door in search of candy for Halloween, I think about other things when October 31st rolls around. For me, Killjoy Barbara, it’s Reformation Day.  (Seriously?)  Yup.  (Zealot.)  Yeah, it’s complicated. I’m back at the door giving out candy on the outside, but on the door […]
