Light from Old Times

The nineteenth century was an age that witnessed great progress in many
areas of exploration and learning. However, according to J.C. Ryle, it was an
age of great ignorance too. What particularly distressed Ryle was the scant
knowledge of the English Reformation evident amongst his contemporaries. In
this lay a grave danger: one of the reasons so many congregations drift form
their evangelical foundations is their sheer ignorance of Christian history,
and their lack of understanding of the major doctrinal controversies and why
they matter. The Bible often calls us to remember the past, Ryle explained, but
the devil tries to make us forget. If the church is to be strengthened, then
Christians must be persuaded to read the saints of the past and to learn the
lessons of church history.
