A discourse concerning the necessity of reformation with respect to the errors and corruptions of the Church of Rome. The first part.

Theodore Beza, Calvin’s friend and successor in Geneva, called “The Necessity for Reforming the Church” the most powerful work of his time. Calvin organizes the work into three large sections.

But surely Rome would agree with Grace alone, wouldn't it. No, not at all. The religions of man are usually comfortable with the idea of God's grace being necessary. Rome has always believed that, as do the Mormon Church in our day (2 Nephi ), but as my friend Dr. James White states so well, "The issue has never been the necessity of grace.

The Reformation officially began in when Martin Luther challenged the Roman Church on the matter of Indulgences. While Luther had no idea of the impact this would make on the German society and the world, this event changed the course of history.

Let not the Protestants of Europe be beguiled into thinking that the Church of Rome has changed. Her rulers are certainly better; but her system is anti-Christian, corrupt, offending, damnable and ruinous as ever.

The second benefit which the Protestant Reformation bestowed upon the Christian people was religious liberty, or freedom of conscience.

The Protestant Reformation was the 16th-century religious, political, intellectual and cultural upheaval that splintered Catholic Europe, setting in place the. The world of the late medieval Roman Catholic Church from which the 16th-century reformers emerged was a complex one.

Over the centuries the church, particularly in the office of the papacy, had become deeply involved in the political life of western resulting intrigues and political manipulations, combined with the church’s increasing power and wealth, contributed to the.

InCalvin wrote “The Necessity of Reforming the Church” in anticipation of Emperor Charles V’s convening the Diet of Spires (Speyer). Altogether there were four Diets (parliamentary assemblies) held at the town of Speyer situated on the river Rhine in Bavaria. 4. The Protestant Reformation exposed profound corruption in church leadership.

Scott Kisker has cleverly pointed out that the Protestant Reformation was really a church split over a controversial building project. In a sense, it’s true—St. Peter’s basilica in Rome was being funded by the exploitative selling of indulgences.

In the early 16th century the Catholic Church experienced a large separation which significantly changed Christianity. The separation, which became known as the "Protestant Reformation", was initiated when Martin Luther (), a Catholic priest, began to publicly challenge numerous teachings of the Catholic Church.

5 historical causes of the Reformation, The Abandonment of Rome by the Popes. In the Late Middle Ages, the papacy had come to play an increasing role in secular rule in Europe.

At the beginning of the 14th century, the pope was locked in a power struggle with King Philip IV of France, which the latter won. Corruption in the Church. Prior to the Reformation, spiritual ignorance shrouded the world and corruption darkened the established church. John Wycliffe lit the flame of truth when he protested the fact that the Scriptures, chained to the pulpit and written in the dead language of Latin, were not.

The Church Today and the Reformation Church. A Comparison. Prof. David J. Engelsma. Preface. It is the commendable practice of the Protestant Reformed Church of South Holland, Illinois, to commemorate, annually, Christ's Reformation of His church in the 16th century, by a fitting speech around the end of October, the time of Martin Luther's standing up to contend for the gospel of grace.

History of Europe - History of Europe - Reformation and Counter-Reformation: In a sense, the Reformation was a protest against the secular values of the Renaissance.

No Italian despots better represented the profligacy, the materialism, and the intellectual hedonism that accompanied these values than did the three Renaissance popes, Alexander VI, Julius II, and Leo X.

During the next year Martin Luther wrote a number of tracts criticising the Papal indulgences, the doctrine of Purgatory, and the corruptions of the Church. "He had launched a national movement in Germany, supported by princes and peasants alike, against the Pope, the Church of Rome, and its economic exploitation of the German people." (7).

Frequently the Reformation is described as a movement that revolved around two pivotal issues. The socalled “material” cause was the debate over sola fide (“justification by faith alone”). The “formal” cause was the issue of sola Scriptura, that the Bible and the Bible alone has the authority to bind the conscience of the believer.

The Reformation (alternatively named the Protestant Reformation or the European Reformation) was a movement within Western Christianity in 16th-century Europe that posed a religious and political challenge to the Catholic Church and in particular to papal authority, arising from what was perceived to be errors, abuses, and discrepancies by the Catholic Church.
