The Protestant Reformers loved their church, but they loved God's Word even more. "The Bible and the Bible only as the rule of faith and practice" was their motto. Martin Luther, John Calvin, William Tyndale, and others pointed people to the Bible, not the church, as the supreme source of truth.
Their convictions brought them into heated controversy with the religious establishments of their day. But their passion for the truths of Scripture led them to stand firm for their convictions despite intense persecution and even death.
Five hundred years later, have we forgotten the principles for which these courageous Christians struggled and sacrificed?
