Where is he?
I will protect you
I am translating the bible
When we find him he shall be excommunicated
The Catholic Church started the selling of indulgences, a letter stating that their sins could be wiped and that you would miss purgatory and go straight to heaven. Luther believed that this was corrupt and that your faith in God alone was strong enough. He rebelled against the Catholic Church.
The catholic is wrong and corrupt. They have been lying and ripping us off.
I agree! We need to stop going to church
Martin Luther wrote the 95 these which were a list of things that the church were doing that was wrong. Luther used printing press to spread the word and hammed a copy to the church wall. This was the beginning of the reformation.

I will just start my own religion
