Thank You, Martin Luther, for 492 Years of “Faith Alone”

A great day to a be a Protestant!  We are justified by faith alone.  Sola Fide!

On this day in 1517, the great reformer, Martin Luther, nailed his 95 theses on the door of the church at Wittenburg.  It created a firestorm.  Eventually, Luther was called to the Diet of Worms in 1520 and asked to recant.  His famous proclamation still rings true 489 years later:

“Unless I am convinced by proofs from Scriptures or by plain and clear reasons and arguments, I can and will not retract, for it is neither safe nor wise to do anything against conscience. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen.”
