A man named Martin Luther was coming home from school, when lightning nearly struck him. Then, promising god that he would become a monk.
I'll become a monk, I promise.
When Martin was visiting a church in Rome, he saw people buying indulgences. Seeing that there was corruption within the church, he felt like people needed to put their trust in god.
They need to put their trust in god, not indulgences.
When Martin had been posting his ideas on the doors of the church, and the church officials were getting mad. They tried to force him to recant,but he didn't, so the Pope decided to allow people to legally murder Martin.
Martin didn't recant about his action, what do we do.
We'll allow people to murder him legally.
When the Pope said that people could legally kill him, he was worried. Luckily, he had a friend who was a really old prince,who sent some men to pretend to kidnap him, but actually save him.
