the stairs are important because that is were martin Luther realized that salvation is gained by faith not works
diet of worms
people are made right with god if by faith alone if that is what they believe but not everyone has to believe that and selling forgiveness is not something the church can do unless they were apologizing to the church not god so they were abusing their power and deserved what they got
martin Luther translated the bible to German
sola scriptura, (scriptura alone) solus christus ( Christ alone) sola gratia (grace alone) sola fide ( faith alone) sola de Gloria ( glory to god only)
to respond to heresy and martins response was he burned the papal bull and refused to renounce his propositions. " I cannot and will not recant anything for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. here I stand, I can do no other so help me god. amen"
as Junker George he was able to walk around town without being noticed and he wrote the new bibles while in Wartburg castle
