How did the change impact society at the time?

There were some people who agreed with Luther's ideas and some people didn't. People who did not agree with with Luther's ideas were asked to sign an agreement to remain loyal to the pope. The ones who believed in Luther's ideas had created their own religious group called the Lutheran Church.

How did that change evidenced in today's modern society?

In today's society we now have many different religious groups with many different names, but are all still Christian. For example, Baptist church's, Methodist church's, etc.. Also, instead of having a pope, we now have priest and preachers who are doing their job correctly and giving the people what they need.
