Martin Luther

Reasons for Reformation needed!!

"I got 95 problems but pope ain't one."


For long enough, Church's had been lying to people about Indulgences. They had been taxing them, more than they're suppose to. The church were financial corrupted and they were abusing power. Additionally their immorality were getting worse and worse everyday because of greed.


Furthermore, Martin Luther objected to the selling of indulgences in his "95 Theses" because he felt that it was wrong to promise that souls would be relieved from purgatory based on a simple monetary contribution, and he also felt that the pope did not have the right to grant a pardon from God.


Additionally, the "95 These" was about how committed to the idea that salvation could be reached through faith and by divine grace only. Acting on this belief, he wrote the "disputation no the power and efficacy of indulgence," mostly known as the "95 these" a list of questions ans proposition for debate. Popular legend has it that on October 31, 1517 Luther defiantly nailed a copy of his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle church. The reality was probably not so dramatic; Luther more likely hung the document on the door of the church matter-of-factly to announce the ensuing academic discussion around it that he was organizing.


"faith is a living and unshakable confidence, a belief in the grace of god so assured that a man would die thousand deaths for its sake"- Martin Luther
