Jerusalem/present day Israel is where it originated.Jesus is the one who started this religion.he is gods son.
The church is the one that controls every thing and has power over the knowledge of the people.They also have the bible and there people cant read it.
this guy is the one of the first people to stand up to the CHURCH. He wrote the 95 thesis and posted it on the church doors.Also he wrote the bible in vernacular for his peeps to understand it. Also told them the truth.
The church has tricked there people. They told there people that if they want to go to haven they need to pay them this was called indulgences.also if you didn't follow there rules or do what they want you to do they would excommunicate you but some people didn't care if they did that .
