Host Wayne Shepherd welcomes you back to “Encounter God’s Truth”from Whitcomb Ministries—where we start with the premise that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end.The 16th-century Reformers believed that, and changed the world of their time on the authority of Scripture alone, as they proclaimed salvation in Christ alone—by grace alone, through faith alone. They wanted their work to point others to the glory of God alone. Yet, we know that the Reformers were unable to bring about a complete transformation of the church in their own lifetimes. In the area of Biblical prophecy, specifically, they failed to fully reform some of the false teachings of the corrupt medieval church. Instead, they adopted and maintained several false doctrines that had been cemented into tradition over the centuries. Joining us over the next two weeks to teach and answer questions related to “The Reformers and Bible Prophecy” is special guest teacher Dr. Andy Woods. Today, he will show us how the Reformers—though they were indeed heroes of the faith—were unable to fully reform the church’s teachings on eschatology, and how that failure has had dramatic implications for the Protestant church all the way down to our time.
