God's Hand Leading Martin Luther - by Rev. Wayne Olson

21 May through 19 November Pastor Olson provides weekly information about the life and work of Martin Luther.


July 23:           Where is Everyone for Confession?


Sometime after 1513 Luther began to notice that many people in Wittenberg were no longer coming to him for confession. He learned that the people were purchasing indulgences outside of Wittenberg and therefore did not think that they needed confession. The problem became especially acute in 1516 when the Dominican friar, Johann Tezel, was selling indulgences around Wittenberg to fund the rebuilding of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. Tezel would sell the indulgences stating, “When the money clangs in the box, the souls spring up to heaven.” This brought many protests against indulgences from Martin Luther.
