The first blogger

495 year ago today Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Castle Church in Wittenburg Germany.

He did this as a protest against the selling of indulgences, but the theses go farther than merely protesting indulgences. Luther had not yet developed the doctrine of sola fide but these theses push in that direction.

The response Luther got, that so many people were interested indicates how much resentment there was against Rome, otherwise everyone would have just ignored it.

Most of us will never blog anything remotely as significant as Luther’s 95 theses, but we should never forget that sometimes just speaking out can make a difference.
