I appreciate those of you who check back here from time to time — it’s not a huge number, but you’re there and I see you (through the magic of the statistics page).
Ever since James Swan invited me to be a part of his team at Beggars All Reformation and Apologetics, I’ve wondered what to do with this space. It’s interesting to see how some multiple-bloggers handle things. Both James and Turretinfan, who post at AOMin, seem to post the same things on both blogs. I understand why they do it, but in some ways it seems redundant to me. Rhology and Frank Turk manage to do it well. But they have “their own blogs” in addition to some of their joint efforts.
I chose the name “Reformation500” because I wanted to celebrate the Reformation. As I’ve written elsewhere (copying Schaff), I believe the Reformation was the greatest “moment” in church history. (I say this with the understanding that a “moment” has its roots in the cross of Christ, and it extends even till today. “with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”)
To paraphrase a popular writer, “We are the Reformation.” Those of us who care about getting Christianity right. The Roman Catholic Church was really, really, really bad at the time of the Reformation. The Reformation was worth doing then, and it’s worth working to get it right today.
