On April 27th 2014 the Roman Catholic Church canonised two former popes, John Paul II and John XXIII. Rome now declares them to be ‘saints’ who can intercede to God on the people’s behalf. Is such a practice Biblical? Who are the true saints of God? What does it mean to be a saint according to the Word of God? Should the Church use relics or should they ever contact the dead in prayer? Paul looks also at what the Bible says about the Roman Church and what it says for those within it’s communion.
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”
-1 Timothy 2:5
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”
