Martin! God Loves You tells the story of the 16th century professor, priest, and monk, Martin Luther. He became famous for posting his 95 theses, a series of documents that contained 95 of his beliefs about God and religion. During his time, people believed they could buy freedom from their sins through indulgences, which was basically a contribution of money to the church. The idea was that if they gave the church enough money, God would forgive them of their sins and they could continue to go on with their life, free and clear.
Luther, however, strongly disagreed with this idea, and thought that freedom through God was not something that could be bought. His belief was that Christ already paid for our sins -- nothing we could do could pay for that. He believed that forgiveness from sins was a free gift that God gives to us. in the historic year of 1517, he proposed his 95 Theses, with his beliefs about what God had intended for religion, and even fighting back against the idea that indulgences worked, and that they should be used at all.
Luther was bold in his beliefs, and he held fast to them, even when he was urged by the Pope and several others to retract his beliefs. Despite pressure from all sides, he continued to believe in his theses and continually stood by them. Because of his failure to stand down, he was excommunicated from the church and even condemned as a basic criminal, all because of his willingness to stand up for his beliefs.
After this Luther didn’t give up or lose faith, instead choosing to continue believing his theses and growing as a Christian man. He spent the rest of his life studying more theology and sharing his views with others, with many of his views not being accepted or appreciated until long after his death. After many years of standing up for his beliefs, Luther finally breathed his last on February 18th, 1546. Having struggled with health issues for over a decade, Luther finally died, leaving an incredible and historic legacy behind him. Whether he witnessed it in his lifetime or not, he became a well-known and much loved theologian and is still respected today, five centuries after his death. Martin Luther is a true inspiration of a man that stood up for what he believed and never backed down, no matter the consequences.
