Trouble for the Church
Martin Luther and the Scala Sancta
¨The one who is right by God by faith will live forever!¨
Schism (multiple popes), simony (buying church jobs) & indulgences (selling forgiveness) caused reformers to speak out.
Scripture alone Christ alone Grace alone Faith alone Glory to God alone
The stairs are important because pilgrims would climb the stairs on Easter Sunday to kiss the hands and feet of Jesus. God gave him the idea to only live by faith.
Diet of Worms
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 Luther decided to spark the reformation by nailing his list of 95 theses to the popes door. The most popular one stating that the church should end selling indulgences and stop the way they see communion.
