You want all 95 of them? In general, Martin Luther was against

the supposition that the Pope could absolve sin by means other than

granting abolution, such as by the sale of indulgences. The church

was spending most of its time collecting monies in the name of the

forgiveness of sins through the sale of indulgences and praying for

the dead, that they were not ministering to the needs of the living

and unforgiven.
