Psalm 147

1 Praise the LORD.

How good it is to sing praises to our God,

how pleasant and fitting to praise him!


2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem;

he gathers the exiles of Israel.


3
He heals the brokenhearted

and binds up their wounds.


4
He determines the number of the stars

and calls them each by name.


5
Great is our Lord and mighty in power;

his understanding has no limit.



6
The LORD sustains the humble

but casts the wicked to the ground.


7
Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;

make music to our God on the harp.


8
He covers the sky with clouds;

he supplies the earth with rain

and makes grass grow on the hills.


9
He provides food for the cattle

and for the young ravens when they call.

10
His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,

nor his delight in the legs of a man;


11
the LORD delights in those who fear him,

who put their hope in his unfailing love.


12
Extol the LORD, O Jerusalem;

praise your God, O Zion,


13
for he strengthens the bars of your gates

and blesses your people within you.


14
He grants peace to your borders

and satisfies you with the finest of wheat.


15
He sends his command to the earth;

his word runs swiftly.



16
He spreads the snow like wool

and scatters the frost like ashes.


17
He hurls down his hail like pebbles.

Who can withstand his icy blast?


18
He sends his word and melts them;

he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow.


19
He has revealed his word to Jacob,

his laws and decrees to Israel.


20
He has done this for no other nation;

they do not know his laws.

Praise the LORD.

HAHA 26

Part 26

Reformation 3 - England Here We Come!

G’day and welcome to Partakers and to our series, HAHA – Heroes and Heretics Abound. Together we are looking at the story of the church from its origins through to the Age of Reasoning in the 18th century. Last time we looked at two of the giants of the Reformation – Ulrich Zwingli and John Calvin as well as the growing persecution of the Protestants - those who embraced the Reformation!

We are now in England in the early 16th century! However Protestantism had commenced earlier in the 14th century with John Wyclif who we looked at back in episode 22. Wyclif was the 'Morning Star of the English Reformation', who had a great desire to ensure that the Bible was made available to everyone in their own language. So a strong evangelical protest started with Wyclif.

King Henry VIII  In the late 1520s King Henry 8th as head of the Roman Catholic Church in England, broke away from the Church in Rome. He broke away because he wanted a divorce from Catherine of Aragon, which Pope Clement VII refused to accept. Earlier, in the year 1521, Clement had recognised Henry as the 'Defender of the Faith' for his writings against Martin Luther. Pope Clement VII was known for his intolerance of Protestants and his main method of evangelisation was through coercion and force if necessary. In 1531 Henry prevented the English clergy from dealing with Rome under an Act of Parliament labelling this as treason. In 1534 Henry was made the 'Supreme Head of the Church of England' by the parliament. However he remained Roman Catholic in practice and doctrine. In 1532 made Thomas Cranmer the Archbishop of Canterbury – the clerical head of the Church of England.

Reformation in England however continued unabated. Thomas Cranmer was a reformer and was helped by many of the Reformers driven from Europe by the Roman Catholic attacks on the Protestants. William Tyndale translated the New Testament into English and this made a significant impact. Edward VI (1547-1553) became the king at the age of 10, and ruled for 6 years. He was well trained by Cranmer. He allowed religious freedom, and he published with the help of Cranmer, the 1st and 2nd Prayer Books. Then there was a change back again!

Mary Tudor "Queen Bloody Mary" (1553-1558). Mary was a fanatical Roman Catholic and set out to re-establish the Roman Catholic Church. She put to death many bishops including Cranmer. She marred Charles V son (Spain) to bring all of Christendom under Spanish power. In 1554, she resubmitted England to Papal authority.

Queen Elizabeth (1559-1603). As a daughter of Henry VIII second wife, Anne Boleyn, she was not recognised by the Pope. She was not in full agreement with the Reforming Protestants, but maintained Protestant leanings. She influenced preparation of the 39 Articles of Communion, largely prepared by Cranmer, which were less reformed as a result. In 1559, she became 'Governor of the Church of England'. She defeated the Spanish Armada, with the help of Sir Francis Drake, who were attacking in order to bring England back under Spanish and Roman Catholic control. This strengthened the Protestant cause in England.

The main issue in the 14th to 16th centuries, as we have seen was 'None but Christ saves'. That is, that the Gospel is good news for all of humanity. Nobody can earn their salvation, but rather salvation is a free gift from God for all those who choose to receive it. This is a far cry from the excesses of Church dogma to date and closer to the teachings of Jesus Christ and the early church.

That’s it for this time! Next time in our series HAHA, we will look at the church in the 17th century continuing the reformation of theology and Christian practise!
