The Reformation is the name we give to the time of the rediscovery of the Gospel in the Western church. In the sixteenth century, a monk named Martin Luther struggled with the weight of the guilt of sin. The rites and traditions of the Roman church did not have the answer.
Instead, Luther delved into the pages of the Bible. There he found a God of grace and forgiveness. The Reformation was about sharing that Gospel, the good news of a God whose love overcomes sin and death through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. The rites and traditions of the church were reformed by the Gospel. In many ways, it was like a system restore, returning things to the way they were before a virus attack.
