Kuiper begins the segment about the Protestant Reformation in his book “The Church in History.1” Regardless whether we would agree with him or not, it is without a suspicion that the Protestant Reformation was a history developing event is the life of the church. As the Catholic Church began to enlarge and grow its territory in Europe corruption (both real and perceived) began to expand itself in the church that prided itself in its roots to the Apostle Peter and Christ. It is said that absolute power degrades absolutely, and that can surely be seen in the history of the Catholic Church.1 Politics, religion, and power all landed and converged on the leadership of the Catholic Church following the fall of the Roman Empire. The problem with joining these three is that together they become a poison rather than a vaccine in the world. As of this several in the church grew disheartened and unhappy with the church and began to desire a reformation, change. The source of the word Protestant comes from a Diet or meeting of Catholic leaders in 1529 in Speyer, Germany to reflect on action against the Turks and try again to arrive at terms with the reformation movement started by Martin Luther (who will be discussed later). The church leaders forbade any expansion of the Reformation awaiting a German council could meet the subsequent year. Charles V affirmed he do away with what he called the Lutheran “heresy.” However, fourteen cities and five reforming princes drafted a protest, for themselves, a formal legal appeal, their subjects and all who in the future or then should trust in the Word of God as expounded by Martin Luther. Therefore, the term Protestant came to suggest any Christian that rejected the authority of the Pope and the Catholic Church and followed the teachings of Martin Luther and the others that came after him. 1.The Church in History B.K.

A year next in his room in the tower of the Black Cloister in Wittenberg, Germany interpreting Paul’s letter to the Romans he came to Romans 1 verse 17 which says “The just shall live by faith.” As he considered the verse, it is said that awesome joy overflowed his heart and the strain on his soul was taken away and no longer would he attempt to earn his salvation by works. The predicament with Luther’s new found conversion and enlightenment was that it was direct resistance to the Catholic Churches education of penance in which taught that a priest could abolish sin but the person that had committed the crime would have to give some act to justify their contriteness.
