The Church certainly had its problems but those were not the major reasons for his fall. Luther fell to pride like satan himself. Luther rejected the foundational dogmatic teachings of the Church and substituted his own. The heresies he created and led countless souls into are condemning who knows how many people. There were Saints of that same time period who saw the corruption in the Church. You know what they did about it? They voiced their opinion when and where they could while remaining obedient to Christ and His Church. You know? That vow that Priests take? That Luther took? Had Luther simply remained within the Church and prayed for it and did anything he could when and where to change things from within (obviously not likely when you're just a Priest-hence where prayer comes in). Christ promised to always be with the Church and keep her from error. That promise has never been broken. Christ healed the Church just has He has always done and always will continue to do, no matter what man made scandals come from within or without. Luther lost his faith in Christ to uphold His scriptural promises, and so Luther set out to do everything himself. That was his sin of pride. And when he fell, he fell hard. And took countless millions of souls with him u_u
Thank you for that Michael Voris-esque rant, but the OP wanted just simple historical facts...he doesn't want a debate. ;)

Hi to all...especially the Luther experts....:)
When did Luther's break with the CC actually occur? Can the the date be penned (or approximate year)?
And what was the final/main reason for the split/break?
Note: Please this is not for debate...just for some historical views and facts. Thanks.
