Daily Morsels-October 31, 2011

494 years ago, Martin Luther hammered the 95 theses on the Wittenberg Door, heralding a major change in Christianity with the onset of the Reformation.

3 Ways to Make the Reformers Proud- I love this article, particularly point 1, which reads "read your Bible more than blogs."  It seems that a lot of young folks I encounter are more influenced by what they heard Piper say than what Jesus said.  If you read several blogs per day, or if you spend a lot of your time watching Paul Washer sermons, but you have never read through the Bible all the way, repent and open your Bible.  Archer writes, "If you quoted Calvin in a debate on Election, he would slap you. Quote Scripture."  Amen.
