With the Catholic Christian Church at the time, who in the right mind would actually start to believe such heretical ideas of his? They would definatly start to be the minority.
I Know very little of the history. But how did the growth come to be? I do know that the “Reformation” was easily done because of what was going on during the Church, and some of Luther’s complaints were relevant. The Church did need a Reformation, and many saints did “reform” the Church (within).
So, obviously, the Protestant Reformation isn’t really a Church Reformation, because Protestants aren’t in full communion with the Church.
But what caused so many believers to go to Luther’s side when the majority of Csristians were Catholic (some Ortho.)?
