Martin Luther against the Catholic Church?
Martin Luther's call to reform the Church is know as several things. Among protestants it is know as the beginning of the Protestant reformation, among Catholic historians, it is know as the protestant revolt, I think the best description would be "total disaster". Although his revolt (among other things) did spark the Counter-reformation, and the Council of Trent; it also fragmented the Body of Christ into thousands of squabbling factions, historically depriving millions of souls of the graces available through the Church, and allowing them to be brought up in error and heresy. It is a sad tragedy that the Holy Father and the Church are still trying to repair to this day. Historically, it has not lasted as long as some other heresies in history, but it has probably caused the most damage and tragedy to the most people of any heresy in history.

It was correctly the man they had been named after, Martin Luther, who had the controversy with the Catholic Church five hundred years earlier. Martin Luther was excommunicated from the Catholic Church. They turned him away. He did not leave them.
I think you have your people confused. It was Martin Luther not MLK who came out against the Catholic church. There is about 400 years difference between the two men. Martin Luther was a priest who felt that the church needed to change and felt that salvation wasn't through fear, but through faith. He began the Protestant Reformation in Germany in 1513. He changed his world.
No. Martin Luther and Martin Luther King Jr are not related. The two men are very similar. Martin Luther King Jr was inspired by Martin Luther. Therefore, he decided to change his name to his role model and hero. Martin Luther rebelled against the Catholic Church in 1517. Martin Luther King Jr rebelled against segregation, freedom of blacks, etc. Hope this helps!
Martin Luther attacked the roman catholic church by writing his 95 thesis - which were his complaints against the church - in the vernacular. the vernacular is the common language, not Latin, which is what was used in Church. By writing in the vernacular, commoners could understand what was being said and more people began having access to his complaints.
Martin Luther is best known for his 95 theses. These theses included the church selling of indulgences to peasants and other members of the Catholic church. He is credited for being excommunicated by the church for his beliefs that opposed the Catholic church. The 95 theses were written by Luther, as a list of reasons for his opposition to clergy officials. . All I can say that is," The CATHOLIC CHURCH is the ONE HOLY…
