Conflict in Scotland: John Knox vs. Mary Queen of ScotsPastor Lutzer | April 15, 2007
God uses imperfect saints, and John Knox was a perfect example of imperfect.
Selected highlights from this sermon
Over time, Scotland grew toward Protestantism. Luther’s documents were becoming well known, and when a man by the name of John Knox began to preach, the nation listened. Once a galley slave, he brought the Word of God in English from Reformed Geneva.
While Mary, Queen of Scots resisted, the Protestant movement progressively integrated with the state, leading to the expulsion of Catholicism. Ultimately, Scotland became a thoroughly Calvinistic heartland.
