How has the Protestant Reformation changed society?
“If we believe that all human beings are created equal, that they are free to act according to conscience, to speak freely, to be treated fairly before the law; if we believe that rulers should obey the same laws as their subjects, that oppression should be resisted; that leaders should be held to account, that differences should be tolerated within civil society – then the Reformation is something we must celebrate.”
These convictions of the Reformation are fast fading as civil society has apparently lost its conviction about the fact that every person is an image-bearer of God.
There can be no justice in a society where the rights of the most vulnerable minority, the individual person, are not upheld against all claims of privilege, including the rights of groups.
Our laws and social practices are increasingly bowing to cater to special interest groups, and codifying the privileged treatment they demand in the name of ‘social justice’. And as we do, the oppression of individuals (and the families that nurture and protect them) grows.
We urgently need another reformation.
