Happy Reformation Day!!!

Happy Reformation Day!!! Today October 31st we celebrate Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the door of the Wittenburg church in Wittenburg Germany. This sparked the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of western civilization. Luther's theology challenged the papacy of the Roman Catholic Church by holding the Bible as the only infallible source of Christian authority. Luther taught that according to the scriptures salvation is the free gift of God, received only by true repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as the Messiah, a faith given by God and unmediated by the church. Martin's translation of the Bible into the vernacular of the German people made the Scriptures more accessible to them. And his hymns inspired the development of congregational singing within Christianity.

If you don't know much about Martin Luther and you want something to wet your appetite I highly recomend the movie "Luther" which came out in 2003. It's a favorite of ours that we have watched many times.

Happy Reformation Day!!!!!!!

A "New" World?

As I've watched the news over the past couple of weeks I can't help but wonder where this global economic crisis is heading. I've heard everything from discussions about a new currency, a union of The United States, Canada & Mexico (North American Union), the NAFTA Superhighway and a national ID card called the "Real ID Act". We are even hearing the phrase "New World Order" being used again. In light of all this one has to wonder what exactly was discussed at the G7 meetings with top world leaders this weekend. Could we be on the verge of a new America or even a New World Order? One thing is for sure, something big is about to take place on a global scale.

The only comfort we have as believers in Christ is that our God is still on His throne!

The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes Proverbs 21:1 (NASB)

The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples Psalm 33:10 (NASB)
