10 Quotes from Reformers to Strengthen Your Faith

Reformation day is on October 31, which is the day in 1517 when Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses, outlining what he saw as the abuses of the Catholic Church, to the church door in Wittenburg, Germany. This act sparked what has come to be known as the Protestant Reformation--a time of great turmoil in Europe, but also amazing growth and revival. Through the Reformation, emphasis was placed back on Scripture and on having a personal relationship with Christ. Another important doctrine to emerge from this time period was that salvation was by God's grace, through Christ alone, without the need for good works. The reformers had a massive impact on society, which we still feel today. We commemorate their work and the importance they placed on faith, Scripture, and knowing Jesus through 10 moving quotes.
