Augustinian monk Martin Luther “gave us back the Gospel” when he began the Protestant Reformation, according to a Ligonier Ministries scholar.
Derek W.H. Thomas, senior minister at the First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina, and professor at Reformed Theological Seminary, told those gathered at an event celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation on Monday evening that Luther was crucial to rediscovering the Gospel.
In a lecture titled “The Importance of Luther,” Thomas referenced Protestant theologian John Calvin, noting that the influential figure said of Luther that “he gave us back the Gospel.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
