The Reformation Still Impacts You in Ways You May not Even Realize

In the world of Protestant Christianity, today is known as Reformation Day. On this day exactly 500 years ago, a monk named Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle church.

This was the usual means to communicate that you had some things you wished to discuss or debate. Luther wrote them in Latin, which indicated that he intended to open an academic debate. He was not trying to cause division, and he certainly was not trying to split off from the Church of Rome.
