It's a shame that some Protestant and Anglican churches celebrate All Saints Day while failing to celebrate Reformation Day.

There are no saints apart from the principles of Sola Scriptura and Justification by grace alone through faith alone. What Luther insisted upon at this trial is precisely what condemned him, and that is the Gospel itself. Continued non-adherence to these principles (outlined clearly in the 39 Articles) by Orthodox and Roman hierarchies, and yes, by hordes of neo-evangelical authorities, separates them not merely from the Reformation but from Christ.

Where in the bible is Sola Scriptura advocated?

And where in the Bible is “faith alone” mentioned—except in James 2:24 where it says, “See how a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.”?

Are you freaking kidding me? “Refomation Day” “biblical truths”

Martin Luther was possessed by the devil and his “reforms” were “deforms”. “biblical truths” my eye

This is what, article number 5 posted by you about reformation day?

It seems reformation day is here and you approve of it, but I think the point of super-saturation has been reached.

How appropriate it is that Reformation Day (October 31st), celebrating Christ's victory over Evil for those who rest in Him,...

Hmm--I always thought it was called "Easter"

This is yet another example of cultish devotion to a man-made doctrine rather than loving devotion to our Lord.

All Saint’s day, Nov 1, was instituted by Pope Gregory the IV in the late 9nth century. Protestantism did not and would not exist for another 6 centuries and to this day has no relevance whatsoever on this Catholic Holy Day of Observation.

so here is what you have since Luther opted out of his faith:

a lot books of the Bible thrown out “because he, Luther, didn’t like them ..sola scripture my posterior... the only scriptura was the scriptura he liked...

a bunch of homosexuals and/or females are now RUNNING the new protestant “reformation”...

Luther didn’t like the sacraments yet his reformation has raised contraception and abortion to the level of sacramentum...

he and the reformation practically invented moral relativism...

but it is all good now...

yeah right..

Celebrating "Reformation Day" is no different than the Northern Kingdom celebrating their independence from Judah. I don't recall God ever authorizing such a celebration.

The schism between Israel and Judah didn't turn out so well, IIRC. Read Jeremiah.
