Angel or Devil?

Why is Martin Luther a Saint?

  • He made The 95 Theses to try and change the Catholic Church not only for his satisfaction, but also for the people who also disagreed with the things the church was doing.
  • Luther put his life, reputation, and conscience on the line by going against the Church, one of the biggest, most powerful public officials at the time.
  • The Reformers absolutely love Luther because he is trying to take the reigns and try and really get the words of the Reformers and the people said, whether good or bad.
  • Martin Luther also uses the ideas and complaints of the Reformers and the people in The 95 Theses so it will benefit them also and somewhat give them a say in what is going on.

"Unless I am convinced by proofs from Scriptures or by plain and clear reasons and arguments, I can and will not retract, for it is neither safe nor wise to do anything against conscience. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen!" ~Martin Luther (1483-1547)

Proof of the Sainthood of Martin Luther:

Why is Martin Luther a sinner?

  • He completely goes against the church, and in some ways or another God. Going to some of the religion I know, it is almost like when Adam and Eve were told not to eat the fruit off the tree, but did under the "spell" of the Devil.
  • Luther insults the church about every little thing they are doing wrong from indulgences to having the Pope have almost TOO much power.
  • The church thinks that if Martin Luther disagrees with everything they do, he is technically disagreeing with God because some of the church's words are from God himself making Luther "unfaithful" for speaking his mind and going against God.
