I pronounce Luther a heretic! he has spoken out against the church.
He did nothing wrong!
Now everyone will know Gods word
95 Theses -Against Gods Word ........................... .......................... .........................
The church decided to backlash Luther and declare him a heretic. A heretic is someone who has spoken out about the church or in the Churches eye has unorthodox beliefs. Because of this declaration of being a heretic, Luther went into hiding.
Now the Church will have to listen.
In Luther's hiding, he translated the Bible into the native language of German, so the public could have access to it and see that is was not God's word. He changed the way the public saw the church and saved the Church from corruption.
This is NOT what Gods Word tells us to do, indulgences are a scam!
We've been fooled by the Church!
In spite of the selling of indulgences from the Roman Catholic Church, Luther decided to write his 95 these. These 95 Theses were Matin Luther's complaints and concerns to the church about the selling of indulgences. He believed that selling these 'get out of purgatory and forgive all sins cards' were going against Gods word and the word of the Bible.
When the Church wouldn't listen to Martin Luther's concerns, he decided to nail them onto the door of castle church for everyone including the townspeople and the Pope could see what was wrong with the indulgences. This caused an uprising of the church and of the people.
When the townspeople noticed Luther's actions, He used his new-found fame to protest about the wrongdoings of the church. This lead to Luther starting his own religion in protest of the church that is known as Lutheranism.
