Just because you are a person who is faithful to Jesus and be obedient to the truth of His Scriptures does not mean you are a heretic. St. Thomas Aquinas defines heresy as a species of infidelity in men who, having professed the faith of Christ, corrupt its dogmas. St. Thomas means with this definition is that the rightful Christian faith dwells by being consent voluntary to Christ and to spread the truth believe of His teachings. The reason Martin Luther was called a heretic was because there was the idea that he wanted to split the Catholic Church. Even though, Pope Benedict XVI claims out that Martin Luther was not a heretic because he never intended to split the Catholic Church. Without doubt I believe that Martin Luther was not a heretic because there are reasons that prove his innocence and what he wanted to this in a good way. The points that are going to talk above to show how Martin Luther is not a heretic is that he knew that the indulgences were against the bible, he sees the Bible with more authority and power than the Roman Catholic Church and the justification of the faith alone.

Introduction Martin Luther grew up in a home with very strict parents. As a result, Luther’s childhood was plagued with anxiety at home and at school. Because his father planned for him to become a lawyer, shortly after receiving a Master of Arts degree from Erfurt University he returned to the university to study law. Consequently, after a life threatening experience in a storm, Luther left the university and joined a monastery. In 1505, Luther became an Augustinian monk and subsequently became a priest in 1507. According to John Dillenberger, “Luther was extremely sensitive to the problem of how to become worthy to receive the grace of God rather than the damning consequences of His righteousness”.
Martin Luther wrestled over justification his whole life, it tore him apart and tore him away from the church. He set out to challenge the belief of the church at the time. He came to the opinion, from his study of the gospel and the early church, that justification comes from God’s gift of grace, that only must be accepted through faith.

Martin Luther was already questioning his catholic fate and this became worse when the pope allowed John Tetzel to sell indulgences. Luther strongly believed that the Catholic Church was conning the people of Wittenberg into believing they could pay off their sins.

Luther sees a vengeful God within the pages of the Holy Bible. He confesses even the smallest sins in hopes of cleaning his soul. Luther focuses on sin. He reads Erasmus’ Greek Bible and garners a new understanding of Scripture within its pages. Luther subscribes to Sola Fide (by faith alone), Sola Gratia (by grace alone), and Sola Scripture (by Scripture alone) view of teaching. Luther was very critical of the Church for selling indulgences to fill the coffers of the Church. Luther is so disgusted by this he writes down his 95 Thesis and pounds them onto the door at the University of Wittenberg. Luther wanted a discussion on the wrongdoings of the Church, but someone printed multiple copies of the 95 Thesis and passed them around. Although Luther never accused the papacy of wrongdoing, the damage was done. Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor, in early 1521 called a diet at Worms. Luther appeared to face charges on his writings about the Church and stood by his words, refusing to repent. Charles V issued the Edict of Worms, in May 1521, declaring Luther an outlaw, banished his writings, and called for his arrest. Luther, however, walked out of the Diet unmolested, walked out of the city gates, and rode toward home. Luther was abducted on his way home and taken to a castle to hide out. While in hiding, Luther translates the Bible into German. Luther’s public absence, some
