A Dark Night and Two Morning StarsPastor Lutzer | January 7, 2007
Before Luther, God was already raising up men to speak the truth against the corrupt Roman Catholic Church.
Selected highlights from this sermon
The corruption of Roman Catholic Church was spreading, and before Martin Luther came on the scene in 1517, there were others who began to oppose this evil.
John Wycliffe gave the Bible to the common man. John Hus burned for opposing church corruption. Erasmus provided a new edition of the Greek text which led to improved Bible translations. Savonarola opposed rampant sensuality. These men prepared the way for the great Reformation.
