In the 95 Theses, Martin Luther talked about the “exclusive merits of Christ in salvation” (Kang, 40). And he objected, “to the concept of merit held by the Roman Catholic Church” (Kang, 40). In the beginning of the theses itself, Luther said that the word, repentance, as prescribed by Jesus Christ “cannot be understood to mean sacramental penance, i.e., confession and satisfaction, which is administered by the priests” (Luther, 1-2).
