Fear of God Devotional: Comparisons Between the Pre-Reformation Period and Many Modern Churches



What are the comparisons between the pre-Reformation period and many modern churches?

Kevin Swanson explains in this video that there are many comparisons between the pre-Reformation period and many modern churches. Just as the Roman Catholic church was plagued by scandals involving homosexuality, child molestation, divorce, and fornication, many churches and their pastors are no different. These things contaminate the Church.

Simply put, we are seeing a decline in culture. Another similarity is that there is very little difference between the Roman Catholic doctrine of “we are saved by our own works” versus a modern doctrine that says “we are saved by our own choices.” Modern churches have largely placed man in the driver’s seat when it comes to his own redemption. It is very harmful to the true Gospel. We are in a crying need for reformation in our day.

Acts 4:12 – “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
