This is season 8 of Office Hours and we are celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. In this episode we look at the background to the Reformation in the medieval church, how the medieval church set the stage for the Reformation by pushing Holy Scripture to the margins in favor of church authority, how the mainstream medieval doctrines of justification and salvation obscured the biblical and ancient Christian gospel of a salvation freely given to sinners and received through faith alone, and how these changes, intended to encourage sanctity, actually ended up producing just the opposite: gross immorality and corruption so great that even the most hardened critics of the church were shocked.
