What ideas of the Roman Catholic Church was Martin Luther against?
indulgences-reduced the time in purgatory when the person died
Neither Martin Luther King, Sr. nor Martin Luther King Jr. ever broke away from the Catholic Church. They were both ever Baptists, and never Catholics. 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.
