June 5: "Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation"
In the 16th century, the leadership of the church had become significantly corrupt. Church leaders were selling indulgences to fund the construction of Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome. Many people bought into this lie that they could purchase their loved ones out of purgatory. God raised up a man named Martin Luther to challenge the church, spawning the Protestant Reformation. Join us as we learn about this extraordinary man and how his teachings have significantly impacted the church for the last 500 years.
