How can the 2017 Wittenberg meeting (website www.wittenberg2017.us) claim to say they will celebrate the 500th hundred anniversary of the Protestant Reformation started by Martin Luther on Oct. 31st 1517? To celebrate an anniversary it means you should support it and honor it correct? But yet the website and the purpose of this historic meeting is to try to reinterpret history and claim that the Reformation actually caused division to the church, hostility, contempt and murder.(That’s there own words in website) They believe that Martin Luther did a lot of damage to Christianity. Wow incredible?! The 2017 Wittenberg meeting plan to bring an end to the Protest started by Martin Luther. So how can they claim to celebrate it if they are not happy with the Protestant Reformation started by Luther and want to end it? Thank God for men who arose in the midst of spiritual darkness, men like Martin Luther, WilliamTyndale, John Wycliffe, Jerome and Huss, John Calvin, John Wesley, Peter Waldo and many more who risked their lives for Bible Truth. They protested of the great evils that were being practiced and promoted by the Roman Church like confessing your sins to the priest, payment of indulgences, infant baptism, salvation by works, veneration of the saints, scripture not allowed to be read by the laity and much more evils… Many of them were persecuted and burned at the stake for standing for Truth. In October 31st of 2017 we should remember those fallen spiritual heroes in which many of them translated the Bible to our own language and show the 2017 Wittenberg movement that the Protest is not over as they claim but it’s very alive because Truth cannot be compromised. Cartersville and Adairsville SDA Churches indeed we will not forget the true meaning of the Protestant Reformation. While many protestants will forget their history and shake hands with the Papacy on Oct 31st 2017 the SDA Church will not. We will lift up the Bible and say as did Martin Luther “Sola Scriptora” (Scripture alone) and “Sola Fide” (Justification by Faith Alone) Therefore our doctrines cannot be swept underneath the rug for the sake of unity. Bible Truth cannot be compromised and intermingled with false teachings. While the 2017 Wittenberg meeting will attempt to bring and unite all faiths together with the Papacy and they say lay aside our beliefs, we know where this will lead. If we lay aside our unique beliefs than how will the Everlasting Gospel be preached? If doctrines and the teachings of the Bible is not important than how will this World be ever warned who is the AntiChrist and the warning of the coming judgments and the Second Coming of Christ? Where are those who will not flinch but stand for Truth? Soon all the pieces of the puzzle will be placed and Spiritual Babylon will form. We must read our Bibles and be prepared for the coming storm.
