MY HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED
A Saint is ANY Believer who is "in CHRIST" and in whom CHRIST DWELLS, whether in Heaven or Earth. Somewhere through out time (994 A.D. to be exact), "man" decided that "SOME" Christians were more Holy and of Higher honor than other Christians, and therefore, needed to be recognized as "SAINTS". Doesn't this apply a different meaning to the understanding of the Biblical definition of SAINT? Acts 9:13, "...YOUR Saints at Jerusalem..."; Acts 9:32, "...to the Saints who lived at Lydda..."; Acts 26:10, "...lock many of the Saints in prisons..."; Ephesians 4:12, "...equipping of the Saints for the ... building up the body of CHRIST...". Isn't the Bible the sole authority of GOD? If man names another a Saint, is that assuming authority of the Church? And by assuming someone is in Heaven because of their deeds here on earth, doesn't that somehow imply or "SHOUT" that something else besides FAITH is needed to bring us to GOD? MY HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED!
