Tomorrow, October 31, 2017, is a very special Reformation Day, marking 500 years since the start of the Protestant Reformation. The Reformation, sparked by Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, was a return to the authority of the Word of God—and we need a new reformation in our churches in 2018!
So many Christians are no longer thinking with God’s Word as their guide. Instead they are allowing the world to influence their thinking and are reinterpreting God’s Word in light of man’s fallible ideas. It’s time to get back to the right foundation!
It’s time to get back to the right foundation!
We recently hosted our annual Answers for Pastors and Christian Leaders Conference here at the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky. The theme this year was Igniting a New Reformation. I opened the conference with a talk titled “Why We Need a New Reformation.”
I challenged the pastors and Christians leaders in attendance to consider the collapse of Christian morality and growing secularization of our nation, the mass exodus of young people from our churches, and the lack of a biblical worldview among the current generation. What is happening? I submit to you that the problem is a foundational one—God’s Word is no longer the authority. Instead, man determines truth—man determines right from wrong. This secular mindset has infiltrated the culture and much of the church and is the foundational problem giving rise to symptoms such as abortion, gay “marriage,” racism, and more.
This talk was recorded and archived on YouTube. In celebration of Reformation Day, I want to share this message with you. I encourage you to watch the video and share it, especially with pastors and other Christian leaders.
It’s time to ignite a new reformation!
