Catholicism was the religion in ancient Rome In Rome there was no separation of church and state like the United States The Pope basically was in charge of the Roman peopleMartin Luther was in the monastery but he began to see some flaws in the Catholic ChurchMartin Luther believed that certain things the Catholic Church were teaching were not morally correct He then went to preach a different religion called Protestantism this caused a big problem between him and the pope Roman Catholicism and Martin Luthers Protestantism have moral differences religious belief differences and caused a lot of conflicts Martin Luther realized morally that there was a lot wrong with the Catholic ChurchFor one thing it was wrong that only the people high up in the church could read the scripture He believed that everyone should be able to understand it and interpret it for themselves this is why he translated it from Latin to German while he was living in Germany because his life was in danger He also did not agree with celibacy and married a former nun A big moral conflict for him was the fact that the Catholic Church sold indulgences in place of sin In his words Christians are to be taught that he who gives to the poor or lends to the needy does a better deed than he who buys indulgences This was a dominate practice in the church and they used the indulgences to make the Church extravagantly beautiful Roman Catholicism and Protestantism have quite a few religious belief differences A major difference is the Catholics believe that if you sin you can pay indulgences to the Church to help keep you out of purgatory However Luther did not agree with this he believed salvation was by faith rather than by works and to denounce the Churchs practices of selling indulgences
