The Need for Reformation

Dr. R. Scott Clark
A council meets and declares that the church is “corrupt in head and members.” Ministers are found in the company of prostitutes and not for the purpose of evangelizing them. Salvation is for sale and the devout are hoping for a mystical experience or to accumulate enough righteousness to be able to stand before God. Such were the headlines in the 16th century before Reformation and they are once again the headlines of our day.
