Why was the Protestant church formed?

Because they saw the catholic church as corrupt. The catholic church had moved a great distance away from the belliefs of the church as set down in the first centuries after Christ and had formed its own rules and dogma. Examples are the ideas of purgatory, limbo, priestly celibacy, over-adulation of the Virgin Mary and so on. On purgatory, the Catholics adopted the idea that when we die we have to undergo a 'cleansing' period before being admitted into heaven. The sellling of 'indulgences' - pieces of paper guaranteeing, say, 100 years taken off the time a soul was in purgatory in return for a large sum of money extorted from an unsusppecting bereaved person - was seen as a nice little earner by the Church, but many, including Martin Luther of Germany saw this as corrupt (and rightly so) and thus started off the protestant movement in Germany as a result.

What are the sheaves that are being brought in in the famous hymn Bringing in the Sheaves?

"Sheaves" is the plural of "sheaf," which the dictionary defines as "a bundle of cut stalks of grain or similar plants bound with straw or twine." The premise of the hymn is based on Jesus' comparison between a harvest of grain and people being "brought into" the kingdom of God. Luke 10:2 - Then He said to them, "The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."

Done.They decided to permit homosexuals in! Disobeying many parts of the Bible! Read 1 Corinthians chapters 5 & 6.
