Mike M. replied to Tanner's discussion Happy Reformation Day! in the group Christian Men
"I can confirm that Reformation Day was observed in Germany in the late 16th century.  I don't have a source handy, but I know that I've read about it when researching other reformation era stuff."

Penelope replied to Tanner's discussion Happy Reformation Day! in the group Christian Men
"Wikipedia says the first observances were in the mid-16th century, a few decades after the posting of the 95 Theses. Regular observance took about 200 years to develop in Protestant Germany. It's a state holiday in some small parts of Europe,…"

"That was a serious question, folks.  I'd literally never heard of "Reformation Day" before this last Halloween. "

Tanner replied to Josh Billings's discussion KJV vs. NIV in the group Christian Men
"Good explanation and +1 for the ESV. I'm the same way, I like fleshing out the subtle differences between the translations. Certain wordings can communicate an idea differently or recall another passage that sheds some additional light."

"And sometimes it's the ceremonial of a denomination's Rites that draws people into a particular community of faith."

"Where and when did "Reformation Day" as a formal entity originate?  "

Tanner replied to Tanner's discussion Happy Reformation Day! in the group Christian Men
"But growth and understanding is the goal? So that one might worship more fully? And the experience is preference? I'm asking because I don't think purely experience or religious comfort or simple participation can be the sole goal for the…"

Tanner replied to Ken D Books's discussion No Judgment! Selective Intolerance and the Atrophy of Virtuous Christian Outrage in the group Christian Men
"The distinction is "each other" or "brothers" or "fellow sheep" and wolves...but now I'm repeating myself. My position was explained clearly. Pulling two statements out of context is what causes division in the…"

"Not necessarily. Liturgy is like opera. There's lots you can understand as a rookie and without knowing the language. And it can inspire a desire to learn the language."

"Is there something untruthful in this article Nick? It doesn't say shoot each other for disagreeing. It says, rightly, use Scripture as example and evidence to defend the gospel of Jesus. Christians lob grenades at each other over stupid…"

"Great article! Thanks for sharing. Unite around Jesus, disagree agreeably on secondary matters, and Biblically call out heresy. Sounds good. Keep reading Ken. Some may never give you an ounce of encouragement. Fortunately those opinions don't…"

"The draw can best be explained by Nathanael's use of Greek on the main forum (about potential in-laws). Sometimes what is old expresses something that the contemporary cannot."

Tanner replied to Tanner's discussion Happy Reformation Day! in the group Christian Men
"The inward transformation results in outward change for the Christian, not the other way around...might be the most concise way to say it."

Quote
A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic - on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg - or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us.
~C.S.Lewis

This was originally forwarded to me as an email. I Googled it and came up with this, slightly more complete, version. It is fake. It is a parable or an allegory or an example. The truths contained in its message are real. Do not make comments about this being a fake speech, I am fully aware of that. I repost it only to get it out there to more people in the hope that more people will see the folly in wishing injury to the "rich" job providers. They are the producers of wealth. They are the… Continue
