About the Reformation

Reformation (lat.reformatio - correction, improvement, reforming) - is a wide religious and socio-political movement of the 16th - the beginning of 17th centuries in Western and Central Europe, focused on the reforming of the catholic christianity according to the Bible.

The beginning of the Reformation is generally identified with the doctor of theology of Wittenberg University Martin Luther. On the 31st of October, 1517 he posted the 95 Theses on the Castle church in Wittenberg, in which he was against corruptions of the Catholicchurch and particularlyagainst the sale of indulgences.

From that very moment the ideas of the Reformation started to spread all over the world and the followers were called Lutherans and the church -the Lutheran church.

There are five main principles of the Reformation:

The first principle is Sola Scriptura ( „ByScripture alone”)

This principle is about the preeminent authority of the Bible.Of course,lutherans don't denythe teachings of the fathers of the church and another sources,but the Bible stands above all.

The second principle of the Reformation is Sola fide (“Byfaith alone”).

This principle is about the fact that forgiveness is given to a man regardless of good deeds and acts.It is a central question of our theology.In our understanding faith doesn't depend on good deeds,but good deeds are the result of faith.

The third principle of the Reformation is Sola gratia ( “byGrace alone”). Salvation comes as undeserved mercy,as a present that God gives to a man.

The fourth principle of the Reformation is Solus Christus (“In Christ alone”).Jesus Christ is the onlyMediator between God and man. A clear and simple understanding of this doctrine leads to a simple and clear christian life.

The fifth principle of the Reformation is Soli Deo gloria (“gloryto God alone”) .It says that a man must worship onlyGod,that gloryand honor must be given to God.

Besides that, with the development of the lutheranism there have been changes in the worldview of people and as a consequence there have been changes in the world politics.

Relying on these principles and social responsibilitywe started this project 500for500 bythe Jubilee of the Reformation
