Semper Renovanda?

There is an interesting and thoughtful take on the reformation principle Semper Reformanda (always reforming) here. One of the highlights:
Yes, restructuring of doctrines and institutions is needed from time to time. But historically, these restructurings generally create as many problems as they solve. Real progress takes place, I believe, when Christians learn to live more deeply into what they have been given. Any restructuring necessary proceeds from this inner renewal, and when reformation works the other way around it doesn't work very well.
