Questions concerning Martin Luther, the theologian. His history, work, and rise to prominence in the Protestant Reformation.
The Pope excommunicated Martin Luther in 1520. However, the Elector of Saxony declined to enforce the Bull of Excommunication, which Luther publicly burnt in the university at Wittenberg. In 1521 the Pope issued a further Bull against Luther and called upon the Emperor to enforce it. Instead, Charles called a Diet at Worms. Luther was called upon to recant, but adamantly refused.
That is pretty simple, Martin Luther was trying to remove Christ's duly appointed Vicar over His Church: the pope in Rome, and replace him, as the final arbiter of religious doctrine with himself!
His main quarrel with theology was that it did not say that Martin Luther was pope, and that only the Church could interpret the Scriptures which she had written and guaranteed instead of himself. Further, the theology of his day called him to be holy, and to follow Christ's commands, which, though based on the Ten Commandments, were far stricter. Martin Luther wanted to sin boldly and still be saved, he did not want to… Read More
In speaking about the one, the single basic difference between Catholicism and Lutheranism many vies have been expressed. There is no single major difference that all theologians agree upon. Perhaps this is so because Luther was full of new ideas. Many theologians cite the following: Man is justified by faith and not by works.It may be recalled that St. Peter and St. Paul were at odds on this very issue. The word of "may" in… Read More
Martin Luther was able to spread Protestant theology with the aid of the printing press. He published tracts into the German language, which before was only written in Latin. He also wrote his 95 thesis against the Catholic Church for the selling of indulgences.
Martin Luther felt that the Catholic Church depended too much on traditions and not enough on Scriptures. The Church had many practices which Luther felt, through his reading of Scriptures, were not supported by the Bible. Some of those practices were: indulgences paid with money the state of Purgatory the state of Limbo that it was more important to believe the Church than to believe the Bible Those are just a few ideas from his… Read More

The Diet of Worms in 1521 was an imperial council that was convened to decide the fate of Martin Luther. It was held in Worms, Germany. The Holy Roman Emperor Charles V presided over the diet. Luther's Protestant views were condemned as heretical by Pope Leo X in the bull Exsurge Domine in 1520. As a result Luther was summoned to either renounce or reaffirm them at the Diet of Worms on 17 April 1521… Read More
Catholics don't think so. But most other Christians would say yes it was a good thing
The actions of Martin Luther (and others) caused a split from The Roman Catholic Church and a branch of Christianity called Protestants was the result.
The cause was the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V trying Martin Luther at Worms (in what is modern day Germany) on 28 January 1521 to either renounce or reaffirm his heretical views. A Diet in the Holy Roman Empire was an assembly of the Imperial Estates under the Holy Roman Emperor himself. It was not a parliament as we know today.
For a couple reasons: the primary one being that the "Church" is the Mystical Body of Christ on earth and, as such, cannot change. It is true that it is full of fallible human beings, but fallible human beings who are infallibly prevented from destroying the Church. So he *couldn't* "CHANGE the Church. The second reason is that although he *said* that he was just trying to remove abuses in the Church, any reasonable person… Read More
At the time that he lived, Martin Luther was perceived as a dangerous heretic who was seeking to flee from God and the faith as God presents it in His Church; as well as leading others into heresy and out of the Church. He was pointedly offered many ways of returning to the faith and making amends for his heresy, but, when he rejected them all, he was excommunicated, along with his followers. Decet Romanum… Read More
April 12, 1963 King and Abernathy are arrested in Birmingham, AlabamaKing and Ralph Abernathy are arrested for violating a state circuit court injunction against protests, after having led a march the same day. King is placed in solitary confinement in the Birmingham jail where he will soon write "Letter From Birmingham Jail."
Martin Luther preached, in his own words, a doctrine of "faith alone". In other words, he believed that all you had to do was believe really strongly and you would be saved. This is in opposition to everything in the Church's history and doctrine and in opposition to the Bible - to such an extent that Martin Luther removed many books from the Bible, and added words to Romans to try and make the Bible… Read More
Having read a good deal of Martin Luther, I don't remember ever seeing this quote in his writings, nor does it sound like him. In addition, I am unable to find those words anywhere as a quote except in your question.
From a Catholic perspective there was no difference, they both left the Church that Christ founded and guaranteed as the only way to attain salvation. And from the other angle - the secular side of it, they were remarkably similar as well. Both of them broke with the Church over private sexual sins and they founded Churches that would approve of their private behavior as they had both tried to get approval of the Catholic… Read More
You are going to need to reword your question to get a meaningful answer. The Catholic Church has been around for 2,000 years, and is in every part of the world. Could you narrow down what you're talking about?
Pope Leo X needed money to finalise the construction of St Peter’s in Rome and planned to declare indulgences for all who contributed. Martin Luther, professor of biblical studies and Augustine monk, initially called only for reforms to the sale and use of indulgences, although not necessarily for them to be abolished altogether. In 1517, he nailed his theses to the door of the castle church in Wittenberg, calling for churchmen to debate the issue… Read More
He did it because he didn't believe in segregation.
Probably the day of his death. At that point, although we cannot know the final disposition of any particular human soul, I'm sure that God had a rich reward for the man who led so many out of Christ's Church and away from salvation. May God have mercy on his soul.
His most famous "show" was posting his 95 Theses on the Church door in Wittenburg.
He left the Church that Christ founded and established his own church thus separated generations of people from the means of salvation that Jesus Christ founded and guaranteed. He convinced the German princes to follow him as they wouldn't have to pay taxes to the Pope, and then the Peace of Augsburg made it law so that all the people in the territory of the heretic princes were deprived of their access to the church.
Despite Luther's claim of being a monk, he was never a monk. When he was in school (college), he was riding a horse home one day in the summer of 1505, he would have been about 22 years old, and a bolt of lighting struck a tree very near him. He was frightened out of his mind, and he made a vow to St. Anna that he would become a monk if he lived through… Read More
Unfortunately, nothing ever opened Martin Luther's eyes to the grace that was offered to him by God, which is unfortunate in the extreme as not only did he throw away his own salvation by refusing God's grace freely offered to him in Christ's Church, but he led millions of people and generations of people away from God's grace and salvation offered in His Church.
It would seem the Martin Luther attacked papal pardons from a position of ignorance as careful reading, say of his 95 Theses, seems to indicate the Martin Luther, himself, did not understand what indulgences actually are, and his followers certainly did not. Martin Luther, despite his supposed position as a teacher of theology never evidences a real understanding of Catholic Theology, but, instead, manifests a vast ignorance of Catholic theology. His arguments are only sad… Read More
I don't believe that Martin Luther gave his 95 Theses a name, although that is what they are called now. Here is what he wrote at the top of his Theses: Out of love for the truth and the desire to bring it to light, the following propositions will be discussed at Wittenberg, under the presidency of the Reverend Father Martin Luther, Master of Arts and of Sacred Theology, and Lecturer in Ordinary on the… Read More
Catholic Answer See, this is an extremely difficult question to answer for the simple reason that the indulgences that Martin Luther was opposed to simply never existed. I don't find this as amazing as I used to. I am going to celebrate my 62 birthday this year. I have been studying Martin Luther off and on since I was a 12 year old boy in Lutheran confirmation class - and realized, at that time, that… Read More
John Wycliffe spoke against the church, but died as a priest of the Catholic Church. He was declared a heretic after death. His body was exhumed and burned. John Huss was a notorious heretic who led many astray. He was excommunicated, when that had no effect, the area he was preaching in was placed under interdict, which still didn't stop him. He had recanted, then reversed his decision. After this went on for a while… Read More
If you are talking about the time and circumstances of the Protestant Reformation, the indulgences that were objected to were being sold by Pope Leo X to finance the rebuilding of St Peter's Basilica in Rome. Martin Luthor objected to the sale because he didn't believe that the Epistle of James was truly the word of God and couldn't understand the doctrine of works outlined therein. He began preaching the doctrine of salvation by sola… Read More
Martin Luther was declared an outlaw and an heretic in 1521 by the Edict of Worms for the simple reason that he was both, and remains so until this day. As a matter of fact, he became far worse after his excommunication in 1521, please remember him in your prayers, and the thousands and millions of souls who have been lead astray and grown up outside of Christ's Church on account of Martin Luther and… Read More

Martin Luther raised questions on righteousness, penance and salvation which resulted in his doctrine of justification. It lead to the division of Roman Catholics and Protestants.
The results of Martin Luther's "beliefs" was the denial of the means of salvation that Our Blessed Lord had left the Church to countless thousands in various Lutheran and neighboring countries for generations; especially as his errors spread and were picked up by others. We cannot judge the state of his soul at death, but it would not bode well for his own salvation, as he steadfastly refused to acknowledge Our Blessed Lord in His… Read More
Martin Luther was unique in the annals of Church history. At a time when most of the Western world was illiterate, he became a monk and learned to read. Unfortunately for the Church, he did learn to read. As he read, he became aware of many incorrect doctrine that was accepted as Church Cannon. Viewing himself as the recipient of a miracle, he decided that it was imperative to spread the "truth" of his reading… Read More
Martin Luther King was a famous civil rights leader.
Martin Luther never took over the Christian Church, he was excommunicated from it in 1521 in the bull Decet Romanum Pontificem: Papal Bull on the Condemnation and Excommunication of Martin Luther, the Heretic, and his Followers, January 3, 1521.
Bottom line? Because Martin Luther started his own church out of nothing, and to give it some semblance of authority, he has to come up with something, so he used the Bible. The only problem with this is that he completely ignored the fact that Jesus Christ never wrote the Bible. Jesus Christ founded a Church and commanded that they go out and convert people. As part of that work, their words were collected by… Read More
Man has free will in order for him to love God. Without free will we are just robots or machines that can't do anything other than what we were made for. But since God gave us free will, we can choose to love Him. Luther and Calvin wanted man to be saved just by believing in God and not having to follow His Will, thus they denied free will, and as Luther said, "sin bravely… Read More
No, he had nothing to do with Geneva. Martin Luther was a scholar in Germany.
Because Martin Luther was a heretic who wanted to make up his own beliefs rather than what was revealed to men by God through His Son, and His Church.
Martin Luther was against the selling of indulgences. At that time John Tetzel was sent by the Pope to Germany to raise money for the renovation of St. Peter's Basilica. In order to raise this money they sold pardons for ones sins. That is why he wrote 95 theses.

Martin Luther King was born in 1929 and died in 1968. He was raised at Altanta, Georgia. On April 4, 1968, a sniper shot him, and his death shocked the nation. He was buried dead in Atlanta, his homeland.
Martin Luther believed in a separation of church and state. Calvin believed that the church should be the state. Calvin felt that if man had free will, then God was not omnipotent. Martin Luther felt that man could have free will and that did not diminish God's power.
they were dissappointed to find out that Luther did not support them, in turn Luther wrote them a letter.
Martin Luther did not translate from the Latin Vulgate translation.
Martin Luther saw the sale of indulgences as a form of simony, which was supposedly foreign to Catholic teaching. He also recognised the potential and fact of their sale leading to widespread corruption in the Church.
Martin Luther's last writing was a short message written on a slip of paper the ... Those who did have access to a Bible were not especially encouraged to ... it proved to be of the greatest importance to Luther's discovery of the Gospel. ... If I had kept at it, I would have become exceedingly good at locating things in the Bible.
Martin Luther did not lead a "reform" against the Catholic Church, although he started out to. What he ended up doing was leading a revolt against the Catholic Church, tearing innumerable people away from Christ's saving sacraments, due entirely to politics of some German princes.
Martin Luther's translation of the Bible could be produced cheaply and quickly.
Martin Luther was a German Augustinian friar, who came to reject some of the teachings of the Catholic Church. He was really looking for change when he nailed the 95 Theses of Contention to the Wittenberg Church door. But, what he started was the Reformation, and in general, the Protestant church. A main idea, still part of the Lutheran Church (ELCA), is that as Paul's Epistle to the Romans, says, "The just will live by… Read More
Martin Luther's request for reforms in the Catholic Church were contained in his 95 Theses, which you can view at the link. In those Theses, the main concern was concerning indulgences. Luther contended that the Pope only had the power to remit those penalties imposed by himself, or canon law (which is in direct contradiction to Our Blessed Saviorâ€™s â€œpower of the keysâ€ granted to the Popes). Thus Martin Luther contended that the Popeâ€™s power… Read More
He was a delegate from Maryland to the Constitutional Convention. He argued strongly against the strong central government conceived in the Virginia plan. Although he stayed through most of the convention and helped work out the Great Compromise, ultimately he could not support the new Constitution and left the convention before its work was finished. In speeches and newspaper articles he argued strongly against ratification. Interestingly, despite his strong Anti-Federalist sentiments, he later came into… Read More
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was shot on April 4, 1968, while standing on a balcony of a motel room in Memphis, Tennesse. He was killed just one month before the beginning of a Nationwide Event he had planned, called The Poor People's Campaign (PPC).

Every one was very sad and mopped around for days and days and days.
Martin Luther King, Jr. died April 4, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee, after an assassination. He was shot while on a balcony at the Lorraine Hotel.
Someone was really unhappy that he brought the races together,so he thought that it would be right to shoot him to discourage others. When a group feels threatened by the social or political powers of other groups, there are often those who are unstable or angry enough to act violently, attacking or killing the people they see as making changes to their world. Political assassins are usually those with personal problems that make them prone… Read More
Being a monk, Luther was exposed daily to the flaws of the Catholic Church. Some of thefaults that alarmed him most were: indulgences, which Tetzel was selling, the fact that only the Popes could read the Bible, and the entire thought of purgatory. Luther knew that purgatory was only some made up place that the church could make money off of by people buying their way out. Indulgences, when John Tetzel came to Wittenberg selling… Read More
no he did not :)
its is important that martin Luther king was here because he helped people to realize they need to stop looking at the color of their skin, and pay attention to personality and who that person is on the inside.
Martin Luther's novel notion of "Sola Scriptura" is so untenable and ridiculous as to be laughable to any person who knows any history. It was a challenge to the Catholic Church because so many people believed Luther's lies, and he ended up dragging an uncountable number of people away from the Church which Our Blessed Lord had founded for their salvation. Sola Scriptura - the notion that all you need is contained in the Sacred… Read More

Loyal, Smart, and Couragous... and a lot more he was the man
Salvation was gained through faith alone. The Bible was the sole source of religious truth. The idea that priests or the Church had special powers was rejected. All Christians had equal access to God through faith and the Bible. Luther translated the Bible into the German vernacular so ordinary people could study it. Lutherans rejected five of the seven sacraments because the Bible did not mention them: the sale of indulgences, confession, pilgrimages, prayers to… Read More
