Out of love for the truth and from desire to elucidate it, the Reverend Father Martin Luther, Master of Arts and Sacred Theology, and ordinary lecturer therein at Wittenberg, intends to defend the following statements and to dispute on them in that place.
He preaches like a heathen who teaches that those who will deliver souls out of Purgatory or buy indulgences do not need repentance and contrition.36.
Every Christian who feels sincere repentance and woe on account of his sins, has perfect remission of pain and guilt even without letters of indulgence.37.
Therefore, the Holy Spirit, acting in the Pope, does well for us, when the latter in his decrees entirely removes the article of death and extreme necessity.10.
Those priests act unreasonably and ill who reserve for Purgatory the penance imposed on the dying.11.This abuse of changing canonical penalty into the penalty of Purgatory seems to have arisen when the bishops were asleep.12.In times of yore, canonical penalties were imposed, not after, but before, absolution, as tests of true repentance and affliction.13.This, too, seems not to be proved, that they are all sure and confident of their salvation, though we may be quite sure of it.20.Therefore the Pope, in speaking of the perfect remission of all punishments, does not mean that all penalties in general be forgiven, but only those imposed by himself.21.And who knows, too, whether all those souls in Purgatory wish to be redeemed, as it is said to have happened with St. Seldom even as he who has sincere repentance, is he who really gains indulgence; that is to say, most seldom to be found.32.On the way to eternal damnation are they and their teachers, who believe that they are sure of their salvation through indulgences.33.If to anybody complete remission of all penalties may be granted, it is certain that it is granted only to those most approaching perfection, that is, to very few.24.Therefore the multitude is misled by the boastful promise of the paid penalty, whereby no manner of distinction is made.25.Nevertheless He does not think of inward penance only: rather is inward penance worthless unless it produces various outward mortifications of the flesh.4.Therefore mortification continues as long as hatred of oneself continues, that is to say, true inward penance lasts until entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven.5.
