Martin Luther - (2) The struggle against his church
Scripture: 2 Timothy 3:10-17
Moving from soul struggle to church trouble, and Luther’s break with Rome. A look at what 31 October marks as a 500th anniversary this year, and what all the fuss is about. What’s the significance of his posting 95 theses on the chapel door, and what his first major arguments and debates with church officials were all about (i.e. his famous stands at Leipzig and then Worms). Overall, the theme is another great principle of Reformation: how do we trust the words of Scripture and why? i.e. bouncing off Luther’s: ‘A simple layman armed with the Scriptures is superior to both Pope and Councils.’ The application will ask questions about our trust in Scripture and our willingness to let the truths and principles of Scripture change and rule our life, because they are the very words of God.
