Five hundred years ago in Europe the church was in a sad condition. Not only was there considerable corruption but in many respects church teaching had departed from Scripture. Many voices called for change and reformation.
The Reformation resulted, sadly, in the division of western Christians into two major groups
While the movement, called the Reformation resulted, sadly, in the division of western Christians into two major groups – Protestant and Roman Catholic – it was also clearly a major return to the atuhority and teaching of Scripture, and within both groups, major changes in church practice and behaviour took place. This week, at FBC we observe Reformation Sunday. We celebrate our heritage as Protestant Christians – and at the same time pray for greater unity among all Christians.
