Lake Chapala Baptist
On October 31, Pastor John Linton celebrated Reformation Sunday at LCBC, focusing on one of the most momentous epochs in the history of Christianity, the Reformation. Sparked by Martin Luther in 1517, the Reformation split the church into two camps: belief in salvation through faith plus good works, and belief in salvation through faith alone.
On October 31, 1517, Luther – then a priest – nailed his famous “95 Theses” to the door of a Catholic church. The document was rife with protests against the Catholic church’s policies such as faith through works and selling “indulgences” in exchange for the salvation of a soul. And from this letter of protest came the Protestant religion.
Romans 1:17—For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
