Fear of God Devotional: When Tradition Overtakes Scripture

What was one of the most impactful reforms of the Reformation?

David Eddy explains in this video that before the Reformation, tradition had largely controlled matters of Church and family life. The Reformation resulted in a tearing down of those traditions and customs and a return to the Scriptures as the source of wisdom and truth.

The return to Scripture was the key to much of the Reformation and the same is true for reformation today. God’s Word never changes – it is the rock that withstands time and attacks upon it. His Word is continuously “living and powerful” (Hebrews 4:12).

Matthew 7:24 (NKJV) – “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock.”
