Martin Luther and John Calvin had been both very essential leaders of the Protestant
Reformation. Although these were both against the Roman Catholic Church, they brought about
very different ideas in religion.
Martin Luther founded the group that will be today referred to as Lutherans. He was ordained
a priest in 1507. He handled questions working with the composition of the church and with its
moral values. These questions were significant in Luther's eyes, but the main was how
to discover favor with God. Luther tried out to pray, quickly, and repent, but he never felt self-satisfaction.
He eventually figured God's love had not been a prize or an incentive to be earned or won, but a
gift idea to be accepted. Luther further figured until guy stops trying to achieve God's favor
through his own achievements he cannot genuinely figure out God's grace. Luther also had the idea
that one didn't want a priest to speak to God, he believed you can pray and repent without
the aid of anyone else. This was the theory that Luther became famous.
