Aaaah! I was just coming home from work and I almost died from a lightning strike. God must have mercy on me for saving me like that.
That is not true!!! The only way to get in to heaven is through faith!!
Come buy your indulgences! The only way to be forgiven of all you sins!!
Should the Pope have those rights!
This is the story of the Martin Luther and the Reformation.(Luther was born in Germany on November 10, 1483. He was a former law student on his way home when this story started.)It all started on a dark and stormy night with man name Martin Luther who was one step away from death.
That close call with death caused Martin Luther become a monk. But he would soon learn how much men could corrupt the Bible.
Some people did not agree with how the church was run. They did not like how the Pope could do things like taxes or appoint people of the church without the kings approval.
So do we not need to buy the indulgences to get in to heaven.
Martin Luther did not approve of how the church was run. He saw how some people were also against the Pope's rule. So he created the 95 these.
So Martin Luther posted the 95 these on the door of the Wittenburg Castle Church. It is ideas that Martin wanted to debate like: the bible is the only source of religious truth or salvation can be gained only through faith in Christ.
After he posted the 95 these was posted people broke away from the Catholic Church and protested against it. They were called the Protestants. That was later called the Reformation.
