However, there are certain teachings and practices within both the Roman Catholic Church and Lutheranism that correlate with what would best satisfy how God would like his followers to revere. Of the topics Luther disagrees with amongst the Catholic Church, the uneven distribution of power within the religious hierarchy is the biggest issue I am an advocate for in regard to his beliefs.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
