Könnte dies ein Zeichen von Gott sein? (Could this be a sign from God?)
We should be living our faith following the biblical scriptures not just following our Priests.
This must come to an end! The church has becom corrupt!
One day a man called Martin Luther was walking home and was almost struck by lightning. He thought it was a sign from God. So he became a monk and devoted his life to God. Martin became later became an imporant figure in the protestant reformation.
The Bible should be translated into the peoples languages, not just written in latin!
Martin saw the great power the Pope had. The church were taking advantage of the black death by selling indulgences to pay for st peters, bascilla . Martin questioned the teachings of the roman catholic church and wanted to make changes.
"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."
Martin wrote a list, debating and questioning the selling of indulgences titled the 95 Thesis. He then nailed it to the door of Wittenberg castle Church.
I am thankful that the Catholic Church no longer sells indulgences, we should all be living a faith following in God through the Bible and attending Church.
The printing press was invented and helped spread Martin's beliefs through pamplets in diffrent lauguages.
Martin did not recant to his beliefs so he was summoned to the diet of worms, by the council. Emperor Charles V later claimed Martin a heritic.
Eventually the catholic church stopped the selling of indulgences. A new religon was made called lutherism, named after Martin Luther.
