The Reformation Today, and Then
Series The Dividing Line 2017
Talked about two relevant issues relating to Rome and the Reformation today, and used that as a springboard to start into a series I am going to do on the history of the Reformation. I have a pretty interesting perspective on the topic for a number of reasons. The first class I taught upon graduating from seminary was church history. I had a great church history prof, and I have always wanted to make the topic interesting, relevant, and understandable. Further, I have engaged in more debates with Roman Catholic apologists than anyone else I know, so I am pretty familiar with the issues they raise out this time period. So I looked at the necessary backgrounds to the Reformation today, and will pick up with the Lollards the next time I get a chance to do a Dividing Line (next week, as I am in Dallas starting Thursday).
