This year, 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s Reformation Movement: An event with ground shaking consequences for Christianity and the world. Luther spoke out boldly against the corruptions he saw in the Roman Catholic Church at that time, and changed the world of Christianity by the stances he took. Today we look at Luther’s background and life as well as a few other individuals who were influential in the reformation of Christianity and getting the Holy Bible into the hands of the people. Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio, who just recently took a group of Christians on a tour of Reformation cites in Europe, joins us to discuss its affect on modern Christianity.
We are saved through Christ alone by grace alone through faith alone. Are we basing our lives on the truth itself, or on the truth plus something else?
Psalm 119 (NKJV) “Excellencies of the Word of God”
Blessed are the undefiled in the way,
Who walk in the law of the Lord!
2 Blessed are those who keep His testimonies,
Who seek Him with the whole heart!
3 They also do no iniquity;
They walk in His ways.
4 You have commanded us
To keep Your precepts diligently.
5 Oh, that my ways were directed
To keep Your statutes!
6 Then I would not be ashamed,
When I look into all Your commandments.
7 I will praise You with uprightness of heart,
When I learn Your righteous judgments.
8 I will keep Your statutes;
Oh, do not forsake me utterly
9 How can a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to Your word.
10 With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!
11 Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
12 Blessed are You, O Lord!
Teach me Your statutes.
13 With my lips I have declared
All the judgments of Your mouth.
14 I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
As much as in all riches.
15 I will meditate on Your precepts,
And contemplate Your ways.
16 I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word…
