One day Martin Luther was caught in a horrific storm. During the storm, Luther feared for his life so he decided to cry out to Saint Anne "Save me and I will become a monk!" The storm passed and Luther was saved. He knew it was only fair to keep his promise, so Luther became a monk.
Luther became increasingly angry about clergy selling indulgences (free get out hell cards.) Luther come to believe that Christians are saved through their faith and not through their own efforts. This turned him against many if the major teachings of the Catholic church.
Martin translated the 95 thises into German and Luther decided to nail the 95 thises onto the doors of the church, and from there people started noticing and realised what the 95 thises meant.
