So what exactly are we celebrating in this year of the Reformation’s five hundredth anniversary? Are we rejoicing in the reformation of the church’s doctrine and worship, away from human-centered religion to a faith centered on the Triune God and the gospel of his saving grace in Christ alone, received through faith alone, communicated through the word and the sacraments alone? Or are we celebrating the Radical enthusiasm that our culture mistakes as the Reformation: the autonomous self, individualism, free will, and inner experience and reason?
Solid article from Michael Horton here: https://www.whitehorseinn.org/article/protestantism-is-over-and-the-radicals-won/
And hence, many flock to Eastern Orthodoxy (or even Rome) as the anabaptistic miasma proves unsatisfying.
But the Reformation was and is a complete success, as God defines and ordains success.
Soli Deo Gloria
