Remembering Martin Luther


Today is All Saints Day, a traditional Christian holiday that remembers the great people who have left our world. Today we remember that remarkable Christian, Martin Luther.

Martin Luther was an Augustinian Monk and professor at Wittenberg College in 1400’s Germany. He became fed up with the abuses occurring within the Catholic Church at that time. His main complaint was the practice of Papal Indulgences, the idea that the good deeds of the saints could be exchanged for cash as a guarantee of a heavenly afterlife. Luther argued that only through the grace and mercy of God can we reach the heavenly throne. For his efforts he was excommunicated and given a death sentence. Fortunately for him a supportive German prince protected him and he continued to teach at Wittenberg until his death.
