Peace and Joy to my Logos Forums Brothers and Sisters!                       *smile*

                 Today is celebrated by many Christians.  It is the anniversary of the date when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the Wittenberg Church door.         It was the eve of All Saints' Day, thus Hallowed Eve.  (Halloween!)

                        He nailed this notice to the church door which was a public bulletin board in a sense.  He wanted to debate the sale of indulgences over against the teachings of The Holy Bible!

                                  The echoes of those hammer blows are still reverberating all over this small planet.

  This is what Logos Bible Software has to say about the 95 Theses -- (from the advertisement of this Logos Resource) --

                                             "Nailed to the door of the Wittenberg Church in October, 1517 to provoke a discussion concerning papal indulgences, this is one of the most significant documents in Christian history. Luther simply wanted to debate the practice of granting indulgences (allowing people to pay money to receive forgiveness for their sins instead of doing penance), but his list of 95 topics of debate was soon published and distributed across Europe. The debate in Wittenberg never took place, but these 95 Theses have surely made their impact on Christianity as many believe this particular document to be the spark that gave birth to the Protestant Reformation. The Logos edition provides the text of the 95 Theses in parallel English and Latin translations."

I can't say that I am an avid student of Luther. However his contributions were pivotal, and some particular works have been invaluable in my journey. I would call attention to his Preface to Romans.   Thank you, Milford, for bringing this celebration to my attention. I knew of it, but it had been squeezed to the back burner.
