Brattleboro - Martin Luther (1483-1546) was one of the two or three most important men of the millennium. He changed the way we see the spiritual world just as Isaac Newton changed the way we see the physical world..
This change began in about October of 1516, 500 years ago. He taught that individuals could "interface" directly with God, without the intervention of a trained professional or an institution. He taught that a loving God gave salvation through faith; people did not have to earn His love by works nor buy it by giving to the church or charities.
