On October 31st in 1517, a German monk named Martin Luther posted his ninety-five theses to the door of the Church in Wittenberg, Germany. His writing was made up of 95 statements by Luther criticizing the doctrine of indulgences, among other practices and beliefs that he saw were contradictory to what God revealed in His Word. Luther posted this document to start a dialogue in hopes that the Catholic church would make some reforms. Instead, Martin Luther kicked off the Protestant Reformation, which God used to make the Scriptures accessible to the people of the church and give a Scriptural foundation for the Christian church today.
