Monastery and Rome Crisis


A Broadcast with R.C. Sproul

The word "holy" gets bandied about often in contemporary culture. Some apply the term to archaic or sacred ideas or items from past civilizations, while others combine it with a noun for use as an impromptu expression of fear or wonder. Unfortunately, the flippant use of this modifier fails to appreciate the proper use of the expression. It is only for the true, living God, and by extension those people and things He hallows. These are holy. Martin Luther grasped this principle astutely. In this lesson, Dr. Sproul expounds on Luther's inability to reconcile his guilt with the holiness of God through the Roman church's traditions and practices.

Our Aim

God calls His people to be transformed by the renewing of their minds. This transformation of thinking God’s thoughts after Him is a daily pursuit. To aid you in this, Renewing Your Mind broadcasts a daily message and related resource offer that exposits the glories of God revealed in the Bible against the backdrop of culture, philosophy, apologetics, ethics, and church history. Think of it as bridging the gap between Sunday school and seminary—equipping you for the Christian life.
