Luther and Henry VIII’s motives for reform sprung from entirely different sources. Luther disagreed with the Catholic church over the doctrine that allowed the selling of indulgences to lay people. After study of the Scriptures, Luther decided that salvation was achieved not by indulgences or even good works, but only by faith alone. Henry VIII’s reasons for his break with the church came from his desire to divorce his wife at the time, Catherine, and marry Anne Boleyn. He asked Pope Clement VII to announce that the king’s previous marriage to Catherine of Aragon was invalid.
THE CRUSADERS AND THE CHURCH The crusades represent a part of church history that many have attempted to forget and leave hidden within the history books. Some claim the crusades to be a courageous time for the Christian church as they attempted to trample out false doctrine and protect the Holy Land from the cult of Islam. Others will quickly identify the crusades as the darkest and most regretful period of time in the history of the church. Either way, there is much detail surrounding the history of the crusades and how they developed. It is not quite as easy as a black and white assumption because many of the men involved had mixed intentions and sentiments regarding what the crusades were actually about.

The Sultan, the pashas, Hoja, and the janissaries all wanted a Muslim world with good relations with other religions minus the Christians. It was the misunderstanding of Muslims by Christians and Christians by Muslims that fueled the fire in this conflict. With the Muslims caught up with religion and not making technological advances a priority they fell to the overpowering European empires which they try to destroy. It was these misunderstandings and oppressions that brought the Ottomans to a halt but the relation that only the Hoja and the young scholar made and finally understood at the end is what draws us in to know that at least these two could co-exist without religion getting in the

He states: “In Jefferson’s full letter, he said separation of church and state means the government will not run the church, but we will use Christian principles with government.” More recently, two researchers have published books that criticize the almost infamous status the metaphor has achieved, especially before the U.

Daniel Dreisbach, who wrote, Thomas Jefferson and the Wall of Separation between Church and State, is critical of the courts for making the metaphor a practical rule of constitutional law. Dreisbach’s basic argument is that the metaphor fails to distinguish between the conception of “separation” and “non-establishment.” Dreisbach is correct in saying that metaphors can be overstated, misused, and made poor substitutes for legal

Furthermore, It was religion which informed the Americans that the British government was not only instituting foolish policies, but also trampling the rights of Americans which were accorded to them by God. Americans believed the King and his parliament were engaging in what amounted to a war against God.
