Why the Reformation still matters

We think of October 31 as Halloween. But, for the believer in Christ Jesus, October 31 should always be remembered as Reformation Day, for it is the day Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses to the door of Castle Church in Wittenburg.

Of course, many Christians dismiss this event as just another boring date in a dusty old history book. But Matthew Barrett has written an essay that takes a slightly different stand. In fact, he makes the case that to abandon the Reformation is to abandon the Gospel.
