October 31, one of the most important days for all Protestants, since on a day like that, in the year 1517, a professor named Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to the door of the church of all saints, Wittenberg, Germany .
Why is Protestant Reformation Day so important?
We must know this, the Catholic Church was practically the only religion, the Pope was the only one who could interpret the Holy Scriptures, in addition, there was no Bible in a language that anyone could understand and there were many doctrinal deceptions, such as salvation by works and indulgences.
Luther’s 95 theses nailed on October 31, 1517 are a harsh and direct response to the system established by the Catholic Church and the popes, there he deals harshly with the subject of indulgences, the interpretation of the Scriptures and salvation by works.
There is something to highlight about our brave reformer, and it is that he lived in a time where speaking against the words of the pope was considered “heresy”, which means that they could burn him tied to a stick as they did with John Huss.
