I was once a believer of saints. I called them and prayed to them just like most of you do. But then, I learned the obvious - that they are human beings, lived a holy life and served God with all their hearts and with all their souls. Just like us, when we live according to the teachings and examples of Jesus, when we put Him at the center of our lives, we too, is definitely living a holy life. Then, what made them extra special?
I will not preach nor condemn the Roman Catholics. I understand we have differences. You have your beliefs, and I have mine. The only thing that I can do is to share a little of mine (since this is my blog)...
Isn't Jesus enough?
He claimed it in John 14:6
"I am the way, and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me."
Isn't this clear? Why do we need to put other figures in heaven to be our mediator?
We only have ONE mediator. 1 Timothy 2:5-6
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time.
