Scene #2  Grace and good works in the Medieval Church  (SV02492)

Luther is taught that the burden of right relationship with God is on the sinner. One must obey God with one's own strength in order to receive grace. When one sins, one must repent fully and perform acts of penitence (or good works), such as: going to church, receiving the sacraments, going on a pilgrimages, giving to charities. And if you did enough of these merits, they would outweigh all the sins in your life. But most people when they died had more sins than merits, hence the reason for purgatory!    (Episode 1)
