2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. All Protestant Christian Denoninations are theological descendents of the Reformation Leaders who saw that the Church had strayed from the teaching of the Bible and was in need of reform.
First among the reformation leaders was Martin Luther who, despite his “holy” life as a monk, constantly doubted his salvation. Relief came in his study of Paul’s letter to the Romans, which revealed to him the pure Gospel. But this also sparked concerns about the church’s practice of selling indulgences, which contradicted the Gospel. Feeling a need to protect his flock and start a scholarly debate, Luther posted his 95 Theses in Wittenberg. His writings were distributed throughout the land, sparking the events that began the Reformation.
