Over in the silly Halloween thread, Dr Bob made a good note about the nature of Reformation Day. Go read it here before commenting: http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?t=89793 Anyhoo, I celebrate Reformation Day on October 31 for the same reason I celebrate Independence Day on July 4, Christmas on December 25 and such. A key event sparked the smoldering fires of reform in Europe as Luther delivered his 95 Theses in Wittenberg. For nearly 500 years we have been the beneficaries of the concerted efforts of so many leaders who realigned the purposes of the Church to rediscover the central "solas" of the faith. Though Baptists clearly arose out of the Radical Reformation later on, and specifically from the English Separatist movement (with some Anabaptist influence), we can still look back to this date in history and be reflectant of the accomplishments and events that took place following this momentus event. I am thankful for the rediscovered "solas" that still anchor our biblical faith: Solus Christus Sola Scriptura Sola Fide Sola Gratia Soli Deo Gloria So what say ye?
