I don’t understand the question. The church was actively offering indulgences in return for a donation to build one of the cathedrals. Luther saw that as a travesty and it was one of his 95 theses he nailed to the door of the cathedral in Wittenburg.[/quote:3pke5jjb]
it’s just that my non catholic friend thought that it was corruption on the part of the church and that if the church did not really want indulgences to be sold then the pope should have stopped it; pretty much like how our Lord did away with the vendors in the vicinity of the temple…

btw did the selling of indulgences really happen in the vicinity of the vatican? that’s what my friend pointed out…
