Martin Luther was a German priest, monk, and tireless defender against a corrupt and abusive Roman Catholic Church of the day that preyed on people’s fears to gain money, power, and status throughout Europe.
So he started a Reformation.
It’s been over 500 years since Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses to the door of All Saints' Church in Wittenberg — a series of arguments against the selling of indulgences, an abuse by the church that tricked the people who trusted them into buying certificates that lessened the time their loved ones had to spend time in Purgatory.
500 years of standing up against wrong doctrine.
500 years of fighting exploitation.
500 years of being an ODG.
