Halloween Reformation Day

Today is Halloween Reformation Day. 490 years ago today Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the doors of a church in Wittenburg Germany.

Sadly, the church in America is in need of Reformation just as much as the medieval church. This video shows the abuses of the Catholic church through the selling of indulgences. This spurned Martin Luther to pen the 95 Theses.

The video clip below is from the movie "Luther." I think Reformation Day is a much better reason to celebrate, than ghosts, goblins and evil. Give you kids some candy tonight and watch this movie, that will be a much better alternative than celebrating evil with all the rest of the world tonight!
