It is nonsense that God had abandoned His Church for more than a thousand years .And then , He suddenly asked a German Monk to create a new church and teach some new truth and doctrines which cannot be found in 1st-16th century.
This is not at all what Luther thought. From the Augsburg Confession:
5] This is about the Sum of our Doctrine, in which, as can be seen, there is nothing that varies from the Scriptures, or from the Church Catholic, or from the Church of Rome as known from its writers. This being the case, they judge harshly who insist that our teachers be regarded as heretics. 6] There is, however, disagreement on certain abuses, which have crept into the Church without rightful authority. And even in these, if there were some difference, there should be proper lenity on the part of bishops to bear with us by reason of the Confession which we have now reviewed; because even the Canons are not so severe as to demand the same rites everywhere, neither, at any time, have the rites of all churches been the same; 7] although, among us, in large part, the ancient rites are diligently observed. 8] For it is a false and malicious charge that all the ceremonies, all the things instituted of old, are abolished in our churches. 9] But it has been a common complaint that some abuses were connected with the ordinary rites. These, inasmuch as they could not be approved with a good conscience, have been to some extent corrected. http://www.bookofconcord.org/augsburgconfession.php
I really wish people would stop blaming Luther for anything other than the Lutherans. Rome's abuses caused the Reformation not Martin Luther.
