Three Patterns of Reformations

NO 1: There is a deviation from God's Truth

1 John 2:15-17

NO 2: God is faithful. He raises us bold men and women who go back to the Truth of Scripture in order to know who God is, who we are, our condition, and how to be right with God.

1 Peter 1:17-21

NO 3: Suffering for standing up for Biblical truth

1 Peter 3:13-18

Examples of this pattern:

- Early Church - Stephen Acts 6,7

- 8th Century - Iconoclasm

- 16-17th Century - Reformation

Our Role in Reformation

We have a role in reforming were the church is erring. 

We have a role of reforming in our own lives and homes.

The directive is the Word of God.

Ideas for our Role in Reform

In the Church:

  • Attend a bible-believing church and be involved, learn, grow
  • Pray for those locked on a false gospel
  • Learn to give a defense for the hope that we have - with gentleness and respect
  • Stand firm on Truth
  • Don't be surprised at suffering

In our own lives:

  • Know the Word of God
  • Teach the Word of God
  • Pray for God to reveal personal religious systems and be humble
  • Be free in Christ
