25 Theses for a 21st Century Reformation


25. For a twenty-first century Reformation, we need to get back to the sixteenth century Reformation and its great emphasis on the absolute Sovereignty of God, We need to realize with Calvin that “all human labour is of equal value. After all, all (Christians) are in the Lord’s service, and contribute towards the maintenance of human society (Opera XXVII, 14); and that all craftsmen of whatever kind, who serve the needs of man, are ministers of God (Opera XXXVI, 83). We need to realize (as did Luther of his wife) that the Christian housewife working to God’s glory In the kitchen is just as much a servant of God as is her husband, the Christian Preacher. We need to realize with Paul that whether we eat or drink or whatever we do, we are to do it all to the glory of God (I Cor.10:31).
