Where John Green teaches you about the Protestant Reformation. Prior to the Protestant Reformation, basically everybody in Europe was a Roman Catholic. Not to obtain all fantastic male, however Martin Luther altered all that. Martin Luther didn’t like the corruption he saw in the church, specifically the sale of extravagances, so he left the church and began his own. And it captured on! And it truly did sort of modification the world. The modifications increased literacy and education, and some even state the Protestant Reformation was the start of Commercialism in Europe.

    Salvation comes through NOT what Luther says but what the original apostle taught!!

    Luther just can't take out the teachings of James (of the Holy Bible) to suite his own needs, but guess what in 2017 that is happening in a big way. Both Catholic and Protestants have fallen away from what Jesus taught in the Holy Bible

    Pope Francis dedicated 2017 to Mary to distract attention away from MARTIN LUTHER, whose 500th ANNIVERSARY OF THE PROTESTANT REFORMATION is in 2017.  Here are some of the wonderful things Protestantism gave us:
    1) The Bible and Church Services in our own languages that we understand (instead of Latin or Old Slavonic)
    2) Full Congregational Participation in Services, with pews for rich & poor alike, to enable us to listen carefully to the inspiring sermons (instead of being "punished" by standing for two hours as mere spectators, while priests perform rituals droning in an unknown language, and people walk around lighting candles, saying prayers, kissing icons, chatting to neighbours, doing business deals & paying no attention to the service)
    3) Congregational Participation in Bell Ringing (instead of forbidding all but monks from ringing the bells)
    4) Congregational Singing in Harmony (instead of just listening to monks chanting in unison & choirs performing)
    5) Casting off Old Testament practices such as head coverings, kneeling & prostration, for Jesus never asked His disciples to kneel before Him, or before Our Heavenly Father
    6) Commemorating the Last Supper in fellowship as the Apostles did, by breaking bread and sipping wine (instead of symbolic cannibalism)
    7) The Empty Cross: we celebrate The Empty Cross, for Christ has risen, just as He said (instead of the crucifix with Christ's body still nailed to it)
    8) Confession of our sins directly & privately to God, as Jesus told us to do, asking forgiveness through Christ the Redeemer (instead of confessing to priests who falsely claim power to forgive our sins)
    9) Praying to Jesus directly (instead of praying to his mother to "intercede" with Him for us, kneeling before her statues & chanting her name with Hindu rosary beads)
    10) Focusing on the New Testament, the New Covenant & Christ's Sacrifice marking the End of All Sacrifices (instead of the Old Testament, Old Covenant human & animal sacrifices)

    The ROMAN catholic so called church is an evil institution that is still in power today still doing all kinds of evil. Rome was never lost it just changed form. Marten Luther did not come out with a new interpretation of the Gospel he came out with the truthful meaning of the Gospel. "He who is with out sin cast the first stone" Why do you think the Pharisee and Sadducees wanted Yahshua (Jesus) dead? because he was calling them out on there injustice.

    Immoral Luther taught false doctrine. Jesus said Sin no more. Luther says "No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times" Luther an immoral man boasted that he slept with the devil more often than his wife Katherina. Luther accused Jesus of committing adultery with the woman at the well. Yet, Protestants follow this evil man & leave the ONE HOLY APOSTOLIC CATHOLIC CHURCH for Luther's lies, deception and false doctrine.

    Martin Luther: Sin Boldly — “No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times each day” Both texts are from Scroll Publishing: Let Your Sins Be Strong: A Letter From Luther to Melanchthon Letter no. 99, 1 August 1521, From the Wartburg (Segment) Translated by Erika Bullmann Flores from: Dr. Martin Luther’s Saemmtliche Schriften Dr, Johannes Georg Walch, Ed. (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, N.D.), Vol. 15,cols. 2585-2590.

    There aren't "countless" branches of christianity, the thing with protestantism is simply that it doesn't have a hierarchical structure. All lutherans are protestants, no matter what their respective church is called.

    Jan Hus and the Hussite's…hero's like Arius and Arian's first to battle evil roman church . All burned as heretics along with Jews.

    Martin Luther was an genocidal anti semite who said in his evil book "the Jews and their lies" to burn all the Jews and their books in their synagogues.

    Mein Kampf quotes Luther. The nazis even minted a gold coin with him on it. Verify all I say….
    He also persecuted and killed Anabaptists such as Mennonites.
    This fact is avoided in most Wasp schools.שלום

    Why no pre-Luther protestants? The Waldensians (now part of the Reformed movement), the Great Rising (which looks a hell of a lot like the German peasant risings John talks about, but in England and with a credible attempt at laying siege to the Tower of London), that time the Lollards nailed their own list of religious disagreements to a church door over a century before Luther did, and so forth?

    I do not claim that these are as important as the changes that the printing press allowed Luther's movement to be, but the video makes it feel like his dissent happened in a vacuum, which it very much did not.

    Luther was an agent of the roman pope to create a new sect of the luke -warm Sun worshipper Constantin created political cult movement, which was unifying all cult believes into one big association, and misled the naïve people to make them believe that this is the same thing that the Most High was established through Jeshua Messiah, the movement of those people whom they are was following the teachings of Jeshua Messiah obediently. But romanism and they Christianity has nothing to do with the redeemed followers of Jeshua. That's why people in every roman Christianity controlled country started leaving the roman Christianity because the man made teachings made the church luke -warm, and people were hungry of the knowledge of the Most High. The controllers of the roman political families were afraid to see that the people leaving the ancient Babylonian religion and they came up with the big idea. Act like a dying movement and create a revolutionary movement which seems telling the truth and able to give salvation to the honest people. Unfortunately most people swallowed this poisonous hook of satan. Luther was a catholic priest, then he started acting as a freedom fighter, but he really kept the millions under the same master's control, which was the head of the Black Nobility.   Luther was a member of a secret society called Rosicrucian's . Easy to prove that Luther never break away from the Black Nobility's payroll.
    He was taking part of killing the Spainyard Miguel Servetes, who was urging the people to refuse the deadly teachings of the roman Christianity's "holy trinity" hidden Babylonian Lucifer worshipping.
    When Lutherism was dying, they formed a new trap for salvation seeking people. They called it Baptism, Pentecostal, Mormon, Jehovas Witnesses, and Seven Day Adventism. All of this trap sects funders were Freemasons or members of some secret societies. People please come out of this Babylonian church movements by leaving the trinity, the ten percent, the filling up with holy ghost, speaking in tongue, and other cult teachings of the Christianity. these are the sins of Babylon, and whoever part taker of these sins,they are gonna be part takers of their punishment when the Most High will start destroying this earthly Babylonian system in the near future !!!

    Jan Hus and later the German workers revolt.
    Luther was a rabid genocidal antisemite who actually wrote in his evil book " the Jews and their lies" where he says to put all the Jews in labor camps then burn them and their books in their synagogues….mein Kampf quotes him…nazis minted a gold coin with him on it…..most nice Christians are unaware of this evil man and how he helped spur on the holocaust.

    I'm from Pakistan(yes, yes; I know; save it.). Yes, I'm Muslim. There are 2.5 million Christians in my country, more than half being Catholic. Which I found strange, considering we were colonized by the Protestant United Kingdom. Someone told me this was because the protestants weren't aggressively(not necessarily in a violent sense) going around and spreading their faith, like the Portuguese and Spanish in their colonies. You have to give them(the protestants) credit for that, and a degree of respect. I'd imagine it's because their ultimate goal must be personal salvation, and thus proselytizing isn't high on their list of priorities.
