Happy Reformation Day


On this day 495 years ago, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the church in Wittenberg. (Well, actually the nailing-to-the-door bit is probably legend.)

Nonetheless, he did deliver his theses, which outlined the problems he saw with the church of his day.

It was a bold move, and it had a huge impact in the Protestant Reformation. Many changes for the better occurred as a result of his actions.

And so, while many know this day only for trick-or-treating, I will choose to remember a bit of church history as well.

But how about about a bit of modern-day application from Martin Luther’s example? There are unquestionably many problems in the church today.

If you were to write a list of theses for the church today, what would it include? Include, if you can, constructive suggestions for improvement.
