Reformation Day Celebrations Commence on Halloween

The Protestant Reformation began on this date nearly 500 years ago, and, in the stead of Halloween parties or trick-or-treating, some churches are hosting events to commemorate the influence of their Protestant patriarchs.

The Reformation began when Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the Castle Church door in Wittenberg, Germany on Oct. 31, 1517. The document challenged the doctrinal positions of the Roman Catholic Church – specifically, the selling of indulgences and the authority of the Pope – which Luther saw as unbiblical.

While many churches across the U.S. commemorated the Reformation during their services on Sunday, some are hosting additional celebrations today. ...

[more irrelevant digression]
Good thing you pointed out this obvious fact, Jim; some people might actually have thought I was comprehending the Mayflower's captain, crew, & rats under the term “Calvinists.”

I know how much you love factual accuracy, & not telling historical fibs.

Why, Neil, of course I would have liked them to have been early day Dispensationalists! Perhaps the Plymouth Adventure would have turned out much better! (Not speaking of the movie, but the Mass. colony.) Why, Neil, I'm not the one that said, "they were Calvinists," It's quite obvious many were not--of the Mayflower crew and passengers (Go watch the movie. )

Yes, the name "Reformed," and many of those of the "Reformed" movement have little or no hope that the Romish church will ever be reformed, The Church of Rome Steps Into Apostasy. You are also correct Henry about Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No.

Why is it “sad to say” that not all the passengers on the Mayflower were Separatists? I thought you liked religious pluralism. And it certainly wasn't sad for the ship's owners.

If you think you're showing me up with such impertinent quibbles, you're failing miserably.

Remember Luther wanted to reform the church from within, he was confident that if he could get word to the Pope about the unbiblical practices of the church that he would be moved to act. But the Pope was implicit, to Luther's shock. He felt betrayed. Luther stood up for what was right. The whole point of the reformation was to get back to the scriptures. Think about it, one man stood up against an entire organization, and accomplished this feat. That is even more miraculous than the six day war. The roman church is not a Christian church.

Sad to say, Neil, the Pilgrims were a mixed bag. How many Pilgrims sailed on the Mayflower? Probably not completely historically accurate, Plymouth Adventure should take the incident out of the textbook category.

Of course the Puritan experiment was a failure, The Unitarian Controversy and Its Puritan Roots which should be no great surprise, and a Theonomy is always doomed to failure except one that is established in the physical presence of Christ.

Staying in Hope of Changing the Church be it Catholic or mainline is a futile action.

Judging by your own Pope's bull of excrementation, apparently not.

Having looked it up, I'm not sure the Cross of St. George (the red cross on the Union Flag) is in fact symbolic of the papacy. And I doubt even more than many Englishmen were aware of it, then & now. Endicott, like the Pharisees of old, made too much ado over a mere symbol.

If it's whitewashed history you want, consider the Mayflower people. Their full story is not only untaught by gov't schools, I think it is equally untaught in most churches & church schools, sinced 1) they were Calvinists, which is a scandal to most churches today, & 2) their strong objections to Anglican rites as idolatrous makes no sense to modern evangelicals inured to this in worship.

It was not Catholicism that brought this on, though I do agree that Catholics, & more particularly their official Thomistic philosophy & leftist Social Teaching, have an outsized influence in America (& Europe), for over a century going. It would be more accurate to call America a Catholic nation than a Christian one, for no other single organization has equiv. influence.

Yes, we had our usual Wednesday night classes at Indian Hills Community Church and due to fortuitous timing my teacher even discussed this incident which was a key point in starting the Reformation, not that the Romish Church can be reformed, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No.
