When Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the doors of the Wittenberg church, it began a radical transformation of western thought and culture. But it wasn’t until the Bible was printed in the common languages that mainstream cultures began to embrace the radical truths presented in the Scriptures and the West was truly transformed.
The historical effect that the 95 theses initiated, was that the scriptures were to transform Western thought and pull Europe out of the Medieval Period into the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery. Biblical truth and virtues became the cornerstone of prosperity all across Europe and America.
It was upon these radical beliefs that America was birthed, and it is to this foundation that America must return… if America wants to return to greatness. But when a nation departs from truth, destructive forces soon follow; as evidenced by Mussolini’s Italy or Hitler’s Germany. As a nation and a culture, we must return to Biblical truth if we want to return to greatness.
