Reformation Lesson Name: Flequasia Crawford Primary Source Analysis 95 Theses Excerpts The following are selected theses points from Luther’s 95 Theses: 33. Men must be on their guard against those who say that the pope's pardons are that inestimable gift of God by which man is reconciled to Him; 36. Every truly repentant Christian has a right to full remission of penalty and guilt, even without letters of pardon. 43. Christians are to be taught that he who gives to the poor or lends to the needy does a better work than buying pardons; 47. Christians are to be taught that the buying of pardons is a matter of free will, and not of commandment. 62. The true treasure of the Church is the Most Holy Gospel of the glory and the grace of God. 66. The treasures of the indulgences are nets with which they now fish for the riches of men. 67. The indulgences which the preachers cry as the "greatest graces" are known to be truly such, in so far as they promote gain.
