See the light (literally and figuratively) and become a confirmed Lutheran.

No allegiance to the Pope.

Only two Sacraments: Baptism and Communion.

Consubstantiation, not Transubstantiation.

You are saved from sin and death by Faith Alone. Not your good deeds, not by contributing money to the Church, but by your own, personal belief in the triune God.

No intercessory prayers to Mary or to any Saints.

Every believer is considered a Saint (and a sinner, at the same time.)

Mary was a sinner and a saint. (To be born without original sin, would mean she was more than a human- a terrible sin to deify her, the Catholic Church has done.)

Pastors in the Lutheran Church may marry, and have children.

Women may be ordained as Pastors.

And, quite recently, openly homosexual individuals may be ordained as Pastors.

In fact, the most Lutheran of Lutheran theologies is the famous quote by Martin Luther (himself, a Catholic monk at one point in his life), "What is this?" or "What does this mean to *me*?"

You are not only allowed to, you are expected to question your faith and your calling and your belief.
