Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther’s 95 theses ignited a refining fire under the Church. This document challenged the Roman Catholic practice of promoting self-righteousness as a means of salvation and the manipulative sale of indulgences – a practice which had developed as men moved away from the right teaching of Scripture and instead embraced their traditions. The biblical concept of Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone) was needed to burn away the dross that had infiltrated church doctrine. Is this principle of the Protestant Reformation just a relic of history, or does the modern church still need the refining influence of Sola Scriptura?
Five hundred years later, modern Christianity has all the remnants of ancient corruption: mysticism, legalism, Gnosticism, statism, etc. These ideas still shape the patterns of daily living and worship for many professing believers rather than the truths of Scripture. We confess that: “Holy Scripture is our only sufficient, certain, and infallible rule of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience.” (2nd London Baptist Confession, Chapter 1).
Join us October 20-21, 2017, as we fan the flame of our faith by reminding ourselves of the importance of the Word of God. “Holy Scripture” is the topic of Semper Reformanda 2017. Featured guest speakers are Rich Barcellos, Voddie Baucham, and Guy Waters.
