The history of the Baptist faith began with the Reformation in the 1500s when Martin Luther posted his 95 tenets, now known as the Rediscovery of the Gospels, to the front door of the Wittenberg Roman Catholic Church. These 95 tenets were taken from the New Testament and informed people that their salvation was in their hands, not in the hands of the established church. This act was followed by a wave in America 200 years later called The Second Great Awakening that was located in New York, New England, and Cumberland Valley (where Kentucky and Tennessee are located). Another revival occurred 100 years later in California. And so it continues….
One simple act created a movement that affected and continues to affect millions of people. This thought got me to thinking:
What do you believe in strongly enough to write down and tack up in public place for the world to see?
