October 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany, which effectively started what we now call the Protestant Reformation.  2 Tim 3:16-17: All scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.  Just a reminder of the first of the 5 solas, Sola Scriptura or “scripture alone”.  Luther recognized the hypocrisy of fallen men claiming to know more than God and to have more authority than His inspired scripture.  As fallen humans, we need a moral compass to keep our life pointed in the right direction.  Books are great, smart people are great, righteous people give great advice, but the foundation for the Christian man is God’s inspired Word.  It may not tell us everything we want to know, but it tells us what we need to know, nothing more, nothing less.  A reminder gentlemen to exercise your spiritual soul just as you do your physical body by spending time in the Word.
