Trick or Treat? It’s Martin Luther

IN THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE, David Mathis does a masterful job at bringing together the event that sparked the Reformation and the occasion Luther chose to make his initial protest, “All Hallows’ Eve.”

Read this article and you will learn about the Reformation as well as the origins of Halloween.

But most of all, as Mathis concludes, you will discover this wonderful truth, “Because of God’s grace in and through Luther, All Hallows’ Eve is now both an occasion to call to mind Jesus’s triumph over Satan and his minions with a bloody cross and empty tomb, as well as a day to thank God especially for the Scriptures and the blessed reforms launched by imperfect saints like Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, and many more nameless visionaries.”

Happy Reformation Day!
