 Martin Luther

Martin Luther wrote The Ninety-Five Theses, which protests against the clerical abuses, especially the sale of indulgences.

Martin Luther was a German Catholic priest, who was a significant figure in the Protestant Reformation.

He confronted indulgence salesmanJohann Tetzel, a Dominican friar, with his Ninety-Five Theses in 1517.

He thought that salvation and subsequently eternity in heaven is not earned by good deeds but is recieved only as a gift of God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ as redeemer from sin and subsequently eternity in hell.

Luther's writings circulated widely, reaching France, England, and Italy as early as 1519.

Martin Luther's translation of the Bible into the Vernacular (Instead of the Latin) made it more accessible, which had a tremendous impact on the church and on German culture.

Three of his best-known works were published in 1520: To the Christian Nobility of the German Nation, On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church, and On the Freedom of a Christian.

Martin Luther stated that he did not consider the Papacy part of the biblical Church because historical interpretation of Bible prophecy concluded that the Papacy was the Antichrist.

His rediscovery of "Christ and His salvation" was the first of two points that became the foundation for the Reformation.

Martin Luther became convinced that the church was corrupt in its ways and had lost sight of what he saw as several of the central truths of Christianity.

Martin Luther's refusal to retract all of his writings at the demand of Pope Leo X in 1520 and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms in 1521 resulted in his excommunication by the Pope and condemnation as an outlaw by the Emperor.

From 1510-1520, Martin Luther lectured on Psalms, the book of Hebrews, Romans, and Galatians. As he studied these portions of the Bible, he came to view the use of terms such as penance and righteousness by the Catholic Church in new ways.

Martin Luther's boldest assertion in the debate was that Matthew 16:18 do not confer on popes the exclusive right to interpret scripture, and that therefore neither popes nor church councils were infallible.
