On this edition of “The Quotable Round-Up”, we commemorate the 500th year of the Reformation. The following quotes are from the book “A Little Book on the Reformation” by Nathan Busenitz. What’s cool is that you can get the book for free just by following this link: https://www.tms.edu/reformation-ebook-giveaway/. But before you download the book, enjoy some snippets from the book:
“Fueled by their study of the Bible, the Reformers proclaimed the truth that salvation is not based on good works. Rather, it is the free gift of God, given to undeserving sinners by grace alone (sola gratia) through faith alone (sola de), on the basis of the nished work of Christ alone (solus Christus). Recognizing that believers can take no credit for their salvation, the Reformers responded to the wonder of redemption by giv ing God all of the glory. Soli Deo gloria summarizes the triumphant cry of sinners who recognize they are saved solely by grace.”
“The Reformers contended that, because Christ is the Head of the church, His Word is the final authority for the church. Papal decrees and church traditions must be subjected to the authority of Scripture alone (sola Scriptura), not the other way around. is commitment to biblical authority led the Reformers to boldly denounce the works-based sacra mental system of medieval Catholicism, recognizing that the true gospel ran contrary to the so-called gospel of the Roman church.”
“Why did Catholic authorities at the Council of Constance condemn John Huss as a heretic? Why did they deem him worthy of death? e answer to those questions revolves around the issue of authority. Based on his study of Scripture, Huss boldly proclaimed that Christ alone is the head of the church, not the pope.”
“It was ignorance of Scripture that made the Reformation necessary. It was the recovery of Scripture that made the Reformation possible. And it was the power of the Scripture that gave the Reformation its enduring impact, as the Holy Spirit brought the truth of His Word to bear on the hearts and minds of individual sinners, transforming them, regenerating them, and giving them eternal life.”
“Tyndale lived at a time when those who dared to translate the Word of God, and thereby unchain it from its Latin coffin, faced the possibility of being burned alive. But the seeds of Protestantism, im planted in English soil a century-and-a-half earlier by John Wycliffe, had come to sprout green shoots that gave fruit in the form of Tyndale’s Bible. For his efforts, the gifted linguist would suffer greatly for the sake of Christ, being thrown into a dungeon and put on trial for his life.”
“There is no part of our life, and no action so minute, that it ought not to be directed to the glory of God.” Those words, penned by John Calvin in his commentary on 1 Corinthians, aptly summarize the life and ministry of this notable Reformer. For Calvin, soli Deo gloria was more than a slogan. It was the primary goal of his life.”
In this outstanding book “Game Plan for Life: Your Personal Playbook for Success”, Ravi unravels the meaning of sin:
“Actually, the word sin has two clear meanings. The first—“to miss the mark—seems less damning, but its sense is still strong. It’s the soccer ball hitting the goalpost instead of the net. It’s the one spike on the runner’s shoe that drifts outside the racing lane and leads to disqualification. It’s the running back’s foot stepping out of bounds by a fraction of an inch.
If it’s true that football is a game of inches, there’s no question that life is too. When we miss the mark of who or what we were meant to be, the consequence are significant.
You’re likely more familiar with the second meaning of the word sin: a deliberate violation, a transgression, breaking the rules. Sin is knowing what is right and choosing to do otherwise; saying no in the face of God.”

Ray Comfort on commenting on the part of Apologetics in Evangelism:
“Although apologetics (the systematic defense of the faith) plays an important part of evangelism, it’s vital to realize that they have a limited function in reaching the lost. If we confine our evangelism to arguing about the existence of God, the inspiration of Scripture, the age of the earth etc., we are like a man who goes fishing with abait but no hook. Although he may attract the fish, they will end up fat and happy—and they will get away. The function of bait is to attract the fish and disguise the hook. When the fish comes around, the fisherman pulls the hook into the jaw and catches his fish. Apologetics are the bait, and the hook is God’s Law. It is the law that appeals to a man’s conscience and brings the knowledge of sin.
