Greetings /r/Reformed I have a few questions that I would like answered 🙂
Hello brothers and sisters of Christ. I go to a church that preaches reformed theology, the private school I went to was reformed as well. Our school was named after George Whitefield.
However it wasn't necessarily their views which made me reformed. As I read the Bible myself even with the preconceived notions of reformed theology. It made perfect sense to me, and by reading the scriptures and praying, I just happened to be reformed before I truly knew what reformed theology meant.
Here is my one issue, well I wouldn't say issue but im just nitpicking.
Our Pastor said he wants to use one services during the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation to talk about Luther. I seriously don't care about these people, at the end of the day they are just men, and more often than not I hear these men brought up in a sermon and it sometimes feels as though we are idolizing the reformers? I hope I'm not being too harsh I'm genuinely curious because it seriously feels that way. Also how important is it for a Christian to know Church History? Does it really matter?
Do you all feel like the father's of the reformation can often be idolized?
I truly believe I already had a view of reformed theology before I truly looked into the 5 Solas as well as Luther and whoever else. So why do we always go back to them and their viewpoints?
