The historic protestant reformation which began “officially” in the 1500’s was a Theo- centric reformation. The reformers through the reading and studying of the Scriptures were given a view to the glory of God that would cause them to cry with the Psalmist, “Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory,” (Ps.115:1). As God revealed himself in his triune nature to our protestant and reformed forefathers they became entranced with a God centered view of all things so that they could say with the apostle Paul, “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.” (Rom.11:36). This historic pillar of the protestant reformation is founded on the doctrine of God revealed in the Scriptures that he is absolutely sovereign in all of his attributes over all that he has made and sustains. God who is incomprehensible, self sufficient, holy, righteous, wise, powerful, and good as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is in the heavens doing everything that he pleases and there is no one and nothing that can thwart his purposes. (Ps.115:3).
