    Read the following excerpt from Martin Luther's 95 Theses. Use the excerpt to answer the following question: When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, "Repent" (Mt 4:17), he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance. This word cannot be understood as referring to the sacrament of penance, that is, confession and satisfaction, as administered by the clergy. Yet it does not mean solely inner repentance; such inner repentance is worthless unless it produces various outward mortification of the flesh. The penalty of sin remains as long as the hatred of self (that is, true inner repentance), namely till our entrance into the kingdom of heaven. The pope neither desires nor is able to remit any penalties except those imposed by his own authority or that of the canons. The pope cannot remit any guilt, except by declaring and showing that it has been remitted by God; or, to be sure, by remitting guilt in cases reserved to his judgment. If his right to grant remission in these cases were disregarded, the guilt would certainly remain unforgiven. Which of the following best summarizes Martin Luther's ideas in points 1 through 3? Repentance is an outdated idea, and true Christians do not need to repent. Repentance is a sacrament that is administered by both the clergy and common people. Repentance is at the center of Christian life, but the sacraments of the Church do not reflect this focus Repentance and the sacrament of penance, administered by the clergy, are the same act.
