Thesis for debate
There will be a debate and I have to write a thesis for both sides, help!
In the framework of reforming the church whose motives were better?
I consider Martin Luther King and Henry VIII
Use their positions. Write that they had good motives and then describe them.
Then you’ll see who is better.
Luther believed that church is a treasure for believers and that it reveals God.
Henry VIII focused on personal motives
Martin Luther’s motives are better, as he was motivated by truth. He wanted to return the church to its roots. Henry was considered to protect the faith but he seems to be opposite to Luther.
He lacks such motivations and fought for reformation because of the pope’s decision and his will to divorce.
I believe that Henry VIII had better motivation. He not only brought freedom related to marriage and divorce but also let people got out the pope’s power.
Luther just opposed the riches of the church and wanted it to remain something spiritual.
