What was the Reformation and what is its continuing significance for today?

  • 11 February 2019

Introduction

The question has been asked of Protestantism: “Where was your church before the Reformation?” One response wittily put forward asks “Where was your face before you washed it this morning?” The Reformation was a cleansing of an increasingly “dirty” church; a rediscovery of truths largely hidden or forgotten; a return “to more biblical foundations in relation to its belief system, morality and structures”. (Historical Theology, McGrath, p158)

How To See God

The Bible has some interesting things to say about the importance of God’s Word and how it relates to His personal presence with us.

Everyone wants to experience a deeper intimacy with God and feel a greater sense of His presence and be filled with more of His Spirit. And the Bible tells us that the main way that happens is through His Word, the Bible.

It is helpful to think of this in trinitarian categories - God’s word as a revelation of God, more specifically of Jesus Christ and, more specifically again, the Spirit of Christ.
