Our new Sunday Bible Class will be kicking off on Sunday, May 7th. For three weeks (May 7th, May 21st, and May 28th), we will be looking at A Man Named Martin - Part 2: The Moment. This Bible study is the second of a three-part series devoted to Martin Luther -- a 15th-century religious reformer from Germany who broke ranks with the Catholic Church and whose Spirit-inspired grasp of God's justification of sinners through faith in the Savior was the cornerstone of the Protestant Reformation. 

Part 2 examines the errant teachings and wayward traditions of the Late Medieval Church that eventually sparked the Protestant Reformation, a theological overhaul set in motion most notably by Martin Luther's nailing of the 95 Theses to the church door at Wittenberg

This three-session Bible Study takes a close look at the widespread teachings of the late Medieval Church that were superfluous to the Bible or not scripturally grounded. Among them were purgatory, penance, celibacy, prayers for the dead, transubstantiation, the treasury of merits of Christ, devotion to Mary and the rosary, the institution of the papacy, and the one most often linked to the Reformation: the sale of indulgences.

 

A Man Named Martin is a fresh and explorative look at an individual who, down through the centuries, has increased in importance and vitality to the CHristian church., To this day, Luther's staunch faith and the extent of his outreach, remain a standard for Christ-centered believers in the 21st-century.
