Everyone except a handful of enlightened beings hold firmly to one or more dogmas until they can reach higher perspectives. I have held to one in particular ever since I could read, round about the age of five. It is this: “Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.” I found by experience that the quotation may have been incomplete. The ending should have been….” But first it will make you miserable.”
Martin Luther had a theological disagreement with the papacy as most people know. He pointed out that the Pope was one of the richest men in the world and was building Saint Peter’s cathedral with money from the poor instead of from his own pocket.
The rich could have their sins forgiven if they paid enough in indulgences. The poor were out of luck, as usual.
