496 years ago today Martin Luther nailed a small nail into the door of his Catholic church in Wittenberg, Germany, posting his 95 Theses.

That nail was probably the most significant of all nails since the crucifixion of our Lord. It turned Europe on its head, diminished forever the power of the Roman pontiff, and sparked a movement that would lead to religious liberty for all in the Western world.

But most importantly, he re-discovered the truth of the Gospel: the just shall live by faith...they do not need to live by fear; terrifying fear of the flames and torments of Purgatory, the "Christian's hell", a horrific place to pay for sins for which Christ has already made "satisfaction" when he shed his blood on the cross!

Thank you, Martin Luther!

May God bless his Church Catholic!

Yes, that explains a lot. You know how they say that because a nail was lost, a horse shoe was lost, and because the horse shoe was lost, the horse was lost, and because the horse was lost, the battle was lost, and because the battle was lost, the war was lost, and all on account of one missing nail?

Well, now we know what happened to the nail.
