Martin Luther - Protestant Reformer – A brief history

Martin Luther the founder of the Protestant Reformation and Lutheranism was raised in an abusive home. His method of escaping the abuse was to run away and join a monastery.
by Daniel E. Mayne, Sr., MA | Source:

Martin lived in a home where both mother and father beat him mercilessly. He reported that his mother beat him until the blood flowed. As long as Martin remained at home he feared his own death at the hands of his parents and he also feared the loss of salvation. He then ran away from home, joined a monastery and found the peace for which he searched.

He became a successful candidate for the priesthood and then went on to become a professor of philosophy and theology at the University of Wittenberg, Germany. In seeking more time to study he fell away from his responsibilities as a priest, he felt guilty because of it and found himself torn between fulfilling his obligations and studying. The attached video will further explain his situation and circumstances.
