Is the Reformation over? Why does the Reformation matter? Martin Luther, John Calvin and other reformers intended for the Reformation to be an ongoing, lasting project, hence the slogan, semper Reformanda, which is translated, “always being reformed” (by the standard of God’s Word). By this, the Reformation is not a movement that looks forward to some distant and uncharted horizon. Rather, it is a continual, spiritual movement that ardently looks back to the Bible. To be sure, much has changed over the past 500 years, from the time that a neurotic monk nailed his 95 theses to the doors of the Wittenberg Church. Still, the Bible Church of Little Rock would be well served to rediscover many of the historical, biblical, and theological hallmarks that defined the 16th century Protestant Reformation. This 12-week study will thus seek to demonstrate why the reformation, indeed, matters and how reformed thought and practice can, likewise, renew and reinvigorate our lives, our homes, our vocations, our nation, our church, and, most importantly, our worship. Beginning September 10th. Taught by Jimmy Fetterly, James Henrich, Keith Phillips, & Benny Riley.
