Reforming Christians

Friday I was at the Far West Region Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society at Talbot Seminary. The plenary speaker was Dr. Mark Seifrid, Professor of New Testament at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I really liked one thing he said:

We need to think of ourselves as ‘Reforming Christians’ first and only secondarily as Protestants. 

I think this is great since I really believe we need to get over the Reformation and press on. Rome chose her path and we’ve clung to the biblical truth. Let’s stop worrying about Rome and focus on the work of the Kingdom. We can deal with Rome when they get in the way but we don’t need to go pick fights. She doesn’t have the political power to burn Reformers at the stake any more.
