Sola Standards

October 29 celebrates the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing the 95 thesis onto the door posting points of discussion. These 95 discussion points dealt with errors he saw within the Catholic Church. While his hope was to cause the Church to examine itself and correct the errors, instead the Church at the time decided to ex-communicate or kill anyone who spoke against it. Ironic, isn't it? One struggles to understand how the Church could have gotten so humanistic & self-focused as to kill those who spoke against its errors. Anyway, it did. So, from the action of Luther, arose a movement we now call "The Reformation." October 31 is Reformation Day, but we remember it on this Sunday.
The Reformers had a foundation that was almost universal across all Reformers, certainly universal across each major Reformer. That 'standard' is known to us as 5 absolutes on which the Church of Christ must stand. These each are referred to as a "sola," which is the Latin for 'only'.
This Sunday, we will remember the Reformation and be reminded of each of the solas surrounded by corresponding song & scripture.
These foundational standards are critical and must continue to be what the Church stands upon -- when these are forgotten, the Church of Christ will become only 'a church'. The head of said church will be a human leader. This church will lead many astray.
Let us never depart from each "sola."
