This October 31st will be 503 years since German monk Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Electorate of Saxony in the Holy Roman Empire, setting into motion the Protestant Reformation. Every year, Fallen by Nature will recognize this event with a special design release. This year’s release is probably a little shocking because its message is very clear. It’s a reminder of our need to continually reform to the Word of God and that Roman Catholicism is still as unbiblical today as it was in Luther’s day.
Ecclesia Reformata, Semper Reformanda
This Latin phrase means, “the church reformed, always reforming” and has become a sort of battle cry in the Protestant church over the centuries. It’s a reminder that we always need to reorient ourselves to the Word of God, or as Kevin Deyoung puts it, “It is about radical adherence to the Holy Scriptures, no matter the cost to ourselves, our traditions, or our own fallible sense of cultural relevance.”
No Peace With Rome
This phrase was famously used by Baptist Preacher Charles Spurgeon. Spurgeon was very clear that this was not a statement against Roman Catholics, but against the Church of Rome. He said, “I pray peace upon one, I pray peace upon all. But while I have a nerve in this arm to raise it, while I have a voice in my tongue to speak it, while I have a throb in my heart to feel it, and while there is life in my veins, I shall say—Peace with all men, but No peace with Rome! Peace with every Roman Catholic, but no peace with the Church of Rome! Peace with all truth, but no peace with any error!”
We need to return to the Word of God and reject all false teaching.
