Today we remember Martin Luther's posting of the 95 protests against the Roman Church in 1517.
The above picture is Luther's "trial" at Worms. Below is the 2003 rendering of the same in a decent movie about Luther. A funny little story about this movie- when it came out a bunch of us Redeemer guys went to see it, 10 or so of us. The theater was relatively empty, but when Luther made his final stand as depicted below, we all stood in unison and cheered as though Rocky had just knocked out Apollo Creed. Great stuff!
Also, there has been a great discussion going on under my earlier post. Check it out here. It will give you a good picture of the main differences between Roman Catholicism and Reformed Christianity.
