Mark 7:7, “In vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrine the commandments of men”
The scripture spoke of those who follow the things created by men, and we should be aware of that. Many people aren’t aware that there are things created by men and passed on as the law of God. One such doctrine is the Pope making one a saint.
The Bible teaches that saints are living persons who have obeyed the gospel and are living faithful lives on earth (Colossians 1:2; Acts 9:13; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 2Thessalonians 1:10; 1 Cor. 16:1:15; 1 Timothy 5:8; Jude 3; Romans 1:7; 2 Cor. 8:4; 1 Cor. 6:1). Saints aren’t made after death but are described as those who die in the Lord (Revelation 14:13; Jude 14; 1 Thess. 4:13-14).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
