On October 31st in the year 1517, Martin Luther nailed the 95 thesis to the door of the Catholic church in Wittenburg, Germany. This bold act confronted the many unbiblical teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic Church and launched a reformation of the church back to the word of God.
The impact of the reformation on western civilization has been monumental – affecting family, church, government, work, science, art, music and cultural institutions. In celebration and remembrance of the historic 500th anniversary of the protestant reformation, Gospel Applied is airing interviews about the reformation with a fervent prayer that the Lord will put a desire in his church again today for a much-needed reformation in 2017.
