Martin Luther was born 1483 november 10. His dad was a miner but wanted something better for his son Martin. So Martin's father decided that Martin should be a lawyer. He was a very bright student and everyone thought he would become a lawyer. In 1505 he got caught in a terrible thunderstorm. Not much is known about the specifics of what happened. Most people that know about Luther agree that he called out to Saint Anne and said if he made it through the storm alive he would become a monk. He made it through the storm so he then sought out a way to become a monk. He became a monk but did not like the way the Catholic Church interpreted the bible and made people pay for a way to get out of purgatory. So he nailed his 95 thesis to the church door. This gained so much publicity it started the protestant church.
Thank you God and saint Anne for helping me through the storm.
1485 november 10 his second b-day
Martin is doing great. He will do great things when he grows up.
Martin's dad was a miner but wanted something better for Martin. He decided Martin should be a lawyer.
Just got back from the mines, how is our boy doing?
Martin at school, age 7 Martin was a great student and all thought he would become a lawyer.
Great job Martin!
So the Italian war......
Please Saint Anne let me live and I will become a monk.
When Martin was running away from the plague and finishing his journey to be a lawyer he got caught in a bad storm. He promised Saint Anne that if he made it out alive he would become a monk.
Luther made it through the storm. So he followed through with his promise and became a monk.
Get your indulgences now! Shorten time in purgatory!
This is not right. The bible says none of this.
Martin did not like how the Catholic church interpreted the bible and made people pay for indulgences.
This is so true
Martin's 95 theses were 95 reasons he wanted to change the Catholic Church. He posted it on the church door, which is like a public bulletin board today.
