Where Christ Is Present: A Theology for All Seasons on the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation
Today’s program is an encore from December 18, 2015.
Five hundred years ago, the church of Jesus Christ underwent a Reformation.
A lot happened after Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the castle church door in Wittenberg. But the fallout was not simply the start of Protestantism. The Roman Catholic Church also recast itself in response to Luther’s call for reforms. And contrary to common belief, Martin Luther did not set out to start a new church. Rather, he was trying to reform the church that already existed by reemphasizing its essence–namely, the “good news” (the gospel) that Jesus forgives and saves sinners.
