Forget Halloween! October 31st is the date in history that all Protestant Christians should remember as the day almost 500 years ago that Martin Luther challenged the false, unbiblical teachings of the church and reminded those of the Christian Faith of the importance of the “Five Solas”: Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Solus Christus, Sola Scriptura, and Soli Deo Gloria; that is: By Grace alone, Through Faith alone, In Christ alone, According to Scripture alone, For God’s Glory alone! This event forever changed the course of the Christian church. Many good articles have been written about what Martin Luther did and the results that we still see and enjoy today. See below for starters.Read the 95 Theses that Luther posted on the door in Wittenburg in 1517: http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/history/95theses.htm.
