The Effect of Ignoring Lessons from the Reformation

text size A A A

What are the effects of ignoring lessons from the Reformation?

Michael Beasley explains in this video that one of the great lessons that we can learn from the Reformation is witnessing human frailty and sin and the danger of complacency. When you look at what led to the Reformation and understand how Scripture was abandoned at that time, it was essentially a repeat of what we saw in the first century when Jesus was on earth.

Pharisees exalted man-made tradition, similar to how the Roman Catholic Church did during the time of the Reformation. The Reformation teaches us the simple lesson that there is no "cruise control" for the Christian or the Church. At the moment we start trusting ourselves and think we’re not prone to error, it is a very dangerous moment and could lead to all sorts of corruption.

Romans 15:4 (NKJV) – “ For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.”
