The people use their money on keeping themselves and their families safe and protected and give to the poor and the needy. 5. Does Luther believe a Christian has to have a pardon to be forgiven? What DOES a Christian need? Luther believes that a Christian does not need a pardon to be forgiven. They just need to be truly repentant. 6. What can papal pardons do (or not do) according to Martin Luther? They can’t absolve a declare a guilty man free of his sins, like they are claiming to do. 7. After reading all of these do you feel whether the pope had just cause to excommunicate Luther form the church? No, I believe the pope only wanted to get rid of Luther from the church because he was imposing a threat to the pope’s control over the Church. 8. What does Luther’s motivation seem to be after reading excerpts from his controversial text? Luther just wanted people to know the Pope was tricking them into giving him their money and he was deception them. His motivation was to let the people know that the way they are buying pardons and such is not the Christian way and they were not truly following their religion.
