Priests began to stop selling people's salvation. After Martin Luther began speaking, people began to realize many things from the catholic church & started leaving. After a while, the catholic church didn't have much power, so they began to change the statements, & even included some of Martin Luther's statements. John Calvin had the idea of predestination & some people feared they weren't selected to go to heaven.
How The Change Impacted Society
The Catholic Church was weakened. Europe was divided religiously. Martin Luther & John Calvin's teachings were spread throughout Europe quickly & soon, many people began to leave the Catholic Church New religions like the "Lutherans" & the religion "Calvinism". Soon, many people left the catholic church & instead joined other religions that they believed were better.
Todays Modern Society
Many of the rules of the Catholic Church still exist to this day. No priest is selling indulgences. Calvinism & Lutheranism are still religions to this day. Nothing has changed recently in the Catholic Church. The Bible is still not available in the Catholic Church. All of these are still here in modern history.
