Over the past week of driving around town, I have noticed various Protestant churches advertising different ways to celebrate Reformation Sunday and the recovery of the "true gospel" after breaking from the Catholic Church. The odd thing is that the Protestants who attend these churches hold contradictory beliefs about what exactly is the "true gospel" and have continued the practice of rejecting one church and starting a new one in pursuit of each group's interpretation of the "true gospel." This thought came to me after I passed a Presbyterian, a Lutheran, and a Baptist church all on the same block, and all with signs mentioning Reformation Sunday. To remain consistent, shouldn't these Protestants celebrate each subsequent split since the Reformation that finally led to the recovery of the "true gospel" now taught at their current church? Obviously, some churches may have more celebrations than others.
Anyway, here is an article over at Called to Communion by Bryan Cross about Reformation Sunday.
Here is another article that is a must read this weekend:
