Many church leaders lived too wealthy and did not care that much about the people. that was one of the criticisms of the church.
You have all that you want and we have nothing!
In the middle ages, Martin Luther wrote down all the criticisms of the Catholic church that all the people had. He nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the church.
Some of Martin Luther's theses include Sola Scriptoria Scripture alone. And Sola Fide faith alone.
I do not like this
Martin Luther spoke out all of his criticisms of the church to the people. His ideas were liked by many people and so they began to follow him. Some of the church did not like him saying this.
I believe that...
Protestants are similar to Catholics but there are some big differences. One is that Protestants don't think of the pope as God's number one leader. Another big reason is that they don't believe that Jesus is fully present in the Eucharist.
There were pros and cons to the Reformation, they had a big impact on the people after it was over.
Pros The church was able to fix the corruption. Became more unified.
Cons Many people left the church. the church was divided.
We have free will!!
In the end, the Protestant Reformation brought out good and bad outcomes to the church and to the people.
The people of the church responded also not so good. They said that there are 7 Sacraments, not 2, also that Christ is entirely in the Eucharist, The Pope is the leader of the church. Finally, the authority of the church comes from the Scripture
