Martin Luther: Saint or Sinner

By Harrison LeGoullon

Saint

Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the door of a Catholic church in Germany. Catholic leaders of course looked upon this as a sin but many people looked upon it as a good thing. He challenged the church by coming up with new and better ways for it to work which would have been good for many people.

Luther was also not afraid to speak out against the church and speak his mind. He would not silence his beliefs because they weren't looked upon as correct. He spoke out against a corrupt system and helped change religion.

Sinner

Martin Luther began many religious wars between Protestants and Catholics. Many wars and battles happened because of his attempted reformation.

Had many hateful and negative ideas and thoughts about people in other religions. He believed his religion was the best. Many historians look at this now as a negative thing that he did incorrectly.
