John Whitcomb: October 22, 2018

Grace alone, faith alone, Christ alone, Scripture alone and the glory of God alone. These “five solas” are the pillars of the Protestant Reformation—heroically restored from the pages of Holy Scripture by the 16th-century Reformers. As we prepare to remember the 501st anniversary of the Reformation on October 31, it is important that we hold these men in the proper, Biblical perspective and judge their teachings according to the perfect rule of Scripture. As much as we might appreciate and respect the Reformers, we realize that only God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! This week on “Encounter God’s Truth” from Whitcomb Ministries, host Wayne Shepherd welcomes back special guest speaker Dr. Andy Woods to conclude his mini-series entitled “Ever Reforming.” Dr. Woods is the author of a book on the Reformation by the same title, and loves studying history in the light of Scripture. The work of reforming the church was not completed in the 16th century. Indeed, it will continue until Christ returns for her! In the meantime, we must be “Ever Reforming.” We trust that this program will encourage you toward that end.
