Only God's grace, by sincerely faith, and even compassion, can a person achieve salvation. 1519 Because of his teachings, Rome ordered Martin Luther to report to the Church officials to explain his beliefs.With the convincing of a friend, Luther didn't go, so Pope Leo X issued that Luther would be excommunicated for 60 days.
