Hi my name is Martin Luther and I have recently become a Monk
Wow! There are many differences in the Bible and The Catholic Church
Martin Luther was a Professor of theology, composer, priest and a Monk and was born in 1480 in Germany. In 1505 Martin Luther became a monk when he was struck by lightning in a storm
Oh no! I did not know that the Church would take it this seriously
After Martin Luther became a monk he started to study the bible (1508) . He saw that the Bible and the Catholic Church disagreed sometimes so he started questioning.
It was not unusual for people to nail things to the door of the church. So on October 31st 1517 Martin nailed 'The 95 Thesis' on the door of Wittenberg Castle Church in Germany. On this it had Indulgences where the Catholic Church would make people pay them to get fogginess for their sins and Martin Luther did not agree that the Church should get money because of this. .
I am going to make my own religion and name it lutherism.
On January 3rd 1521 Martin Luther was excommunicated and kicked out of the Catholic Church and got called a heretic. This happened because after Martin nailed the 95 Thesis on the church door, the church started loosing money
In 1522 Martin Luther decided to translate the bible to German so that people could read it for themselves and understand what the bible actually says.
After Martin Luther got kicked out of the Catholic Church he decided to create his own religion, he called this Lutherism. This is a religion where they believe that the bible, not the pope, has final authority.
