Fear of God Devotional: Ways in Which the Reformation Fell Short



In what ways did the Reformation fall short?  

Sam Waldron explains in this video that while generally speaking, the Reformation made significant progress in conforming life to Scripture, there were still certain areas where reforms were incomplete or they did go far enough. These shortcomings still negatively affect the Church today.

For instance, Martin Luther held to the state church doctrine and of infant baptism because they were assumed to be part of the Church. Yet, these two false beliefs were rooted in tradition and not in Scripture. We must continually be reforming and seek to understand how we might conform our lives and beliefs more closely to Scripture. 

Psalm 71:18 (NKJV) – “Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, do not forsake me, until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come.”
