Meanwhile, in Rome the Church's treasury was empty due to lavish lifestyle of Pope Leo X.
Sire,the Church is running short of money.
Never fear, we will simply start the sale of indulgences and fill it.
During that time Martin was paying a visit to Rome with Spalatin. But then...
Pope Leo X was furious at Martin's insolence and so he was called to the Diet of Worms- a royal assembly of King Charles V.
This is not true. Nobody can pay for their sins . Jesus has already paid for all our sins.These indulgences deserve to be burnt!!
Now I can drink as much as I like because I have paid for my sins .
Indulgences-Forgiveness from Purgatory!!
Martin Luther was disillusioned by the teachings of the Church and wrote the 95 theses...
95 thesesPope himself cannot accept any gifts.Christian who is truly repentant who receives forgiveness. There is nothing in the Scriptures of souls being freed from Purgatory when money is given to Church.
The 95 theses were published widely and so Pope Leo X sent Johann Eck to debate him.
Only the Pope is qualified to decipher the Bible and you say that it should be translated to local languages!!
Long live Martin Luther!!
Anyone who puts his faith in the holy scriptures is even above the Pope who ignores it!!
I have 2 questions. Are these books yours and do you stand by their contents?
Thus, I cannot and will not take back anything!!
Yes, I wrote them.I am bound by Scriptures I have quoted and my conscience is captive to God's word.
