Theses Assignment 1) According to the excerpt from the 95 Theses, Martin Luther suggests that the true "treasure of the church" is the Holy Gospel. I know this because in the excerpt it says that the Gospel is most holy due to the "grace of god". 2) According to the excerpt from the 95 Theses, Martin Luther explains that it is a serious sin to buy ingulgences in order to be forgiven by god. I know this because in the excerpt it says that buying these indulgences havs very much "violated the Mother of God". He also mentions that it is better to give to the poor rather than buying or selling pardons. 3) According to the following excerpts from the 95 Theses, Martin Luther's opinion on the pope was disagrement with the views of what he was doing. I know this, because in the excerpts it says that Luther disagrees with selling indulgences and the immense wealth of the church rather than giving back to the people. He mentions that the indulgences "promote gain" rather than being the "greatest graces to someone"
