  • Talking To The Saints

    Wednesday, September 13, 2017

    There are some denominations that believe in the veneration of saints. They build statues to honor them and pray to them- Saint Joseph, Saint Jude, etc. Is it biblical to venerate saints? Yes, as long as it’s the right saints and the right venerating – as in giving honor. Scripture teaches that everyone who’s born of the Spirit is a saint – thus we must believe in all of them. It’s saints who greet you at Worship Service, who teach the word, who sit next to you in the service. We’re to honor the saints around us, never to worship or pray to them, but to revere and bless them. The saints who are already in heaven don’t need your reverence, but the saint who sits next to you, your brother and sister in the Lord, could use real love, respect, honor, and encouragement. It’s okay to ask a saint to pray for you as long as the saint is alive. It’s even nicer to pray for a sain t, because the saints can use your prayers. Love a saint today, because saints are biblical and so is their veneration and blessing. rnFrom Message #752 - To Become a Saint

    Scripture: Eph. 6:18

    TODAY'S MISSION - Take every opportunity the Lord gives you today, to honor and encourage the saints around you.

    Shining Wolf It is my understanding that christianity stems from the Hebraic Faith, which forbids idols of any kind (statues to bend ones knee, praying and venerating), therefore, I find it hard to understand why this is done. Are there two christianities?
