Stand up and be counted
November 17, 2017
There comes a time in your life that you have to stand up and be counted for the truth. We find that hard to do.
Five hundred years ago this last Friday a man stood up and was counted for the cause of Christ. His stand forever changed the course of history. In 1517 on Oct. 31 a lowly monk of the Roman Catholic Church challenged the problem of indulgences. Indulgences meant that you could buy your way into heaven. Martin Luther nailed his complaints on the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany (today we would call this social media). They were known as his Ninety-Five Theses.
