Convert or you will die!

As you can see this man chose not to convert. like a lot of others since he didn't convert he was burned on the cross
This continued for a long time until Martin Luther spoke up about it.
Martin Luther went to churches placing his 95 these on the doors. The 95 theses told how the church was treating people wrongly, and selling indulgences. this changed Europe and all of its churches forever. .
