Sola – 500 Years later
On this Tuesday our world celebrates an event that changed Europe, organized religion, and the rest of the world to this very day. It is when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the chapel in Wittenberg, Germany. Out of that event grew a cry of 5 statements of faith that rocked organized religion of that day. Let’s refresh our minds to these teaching, and remember what they mean to us and our faith.
No pope, magisterium, tradition to over-ride the authority of the Bible.
