The 95 Theses
Wittenberg Catholic Church
In the early 16th Century, Martin Luther created his own Religion called Lutheranism. It was the major Religion during the Reformation. Many people followed and supported Lutheranism and it was often seen as the Real Church of God. Lutheranism was one of the last things Martin Luther did, as only a few years later, Martin Luther suffered a stroke and passed away. He was mourned for many years and the Catholic Church would never be the same without him. He truly was a remarkable person.
Martin Luther- the Heretic
YOU ARE A HERETIC!!! YOU HAVE BETRAYED THE CHURCH... I SENTENCE YOU TO DEATH AT THE STAKE!!!
In 1517, Pope Leo X offered indulgences (a "Go to Heaven free card" sold by the Church) to anyone who helped rebuild St. Peter's Basilica. As a German Monk, Martin Luther had read the Bible and knew that this was a SCAM and not what God wanted. He began to protest and rebel against the Church.
A Secret Mission
Now everyone will be able to read the Bible and see what God really wanted and how the Church is lying to everyone.
On October 31st 1517, Martin Luther finished his document with 95 seperate points, each calling out the Roman Catholic Church for different reasons. He then went to the Church in Wittenberg and posted this document as the 95 Theses.
The Truth Comes Out
The Church have been lying to us! They have told us different to what God really wants!
Martin! Martin! The Church is CORRUPT! BURN THE CHURCHES!
After several more complaints and continous attempts at calling out the Church, Martin Luther was sentenced to death at the stake, where he would be burned alive in front of everyone for being seen as a heratic. Although, a Prince took him into hiding where he would soon harness the newest innovation at the time... the Printing Press.
YOU ARE CORRUPT WITH POWER!!! PEOPLE DON'T BELIEVE HIM, HE IS LYING!!!
PSST!!! Martin, over here!
Martin was in hiding, people stopped believing what he said and the Church's power was almost completely restored. However, Martin was still busy, he translated the Bible from Latin to German and began smuggling them and the 95 Theses all around Germany. It wouldn't be long before the truth would come out.
Latin (Original) Bible
Martin had smuggled thousands of copies out of his hiding place into Germany and many people started to protest, the Churches power started to dissipate and the Pope was overthrown. People all around Europe were rebelling and the Church was starting to collapse. All the lies had been discovered, the corruption- uncovered.
Now people now the truth about God and how the Church has lied to us :)
