Henry VIII: How the Man with Six Wives Ignited a ReformationPastor Lutzer | March 25, 2007
The Protestant movement flourished in England due to the faithfulness of martyrs like Ridley, Latimer, and Cramner.
Selected highlights from this sermon
Anglicanism came about in an unusual manner. In order to support his immorality, King Henry VIII separated the Church of England from Rome. After he died, Protestantism began to take hold.
But Mary, Queen of Scots, persecuted it fiercely, burning hundreds of godly people at the stake. When she perished, Queen Elizabeth, a Protestant, brought stability. Even so, people wanted the realm to reform more than England. This led many to travel with their Protestant faith, as far as the shores of the United States.
