Pope Will In "Beatification" In May Posted on January 22, 2011 by Dr. Steven The Vatican has announced that the late Pope John Paul II will be in the "beatification" of May 1 as an important step towards the status of the Catholic saint. Commission "the saints" has determined that the pope had died was doing a miracle of prayer when he was responding to the prayers of Marie Simon-Pierre, a French nun cured of Parkinson's disease. Normally, it takes waiting for 5 years after a person died before the process of becoming a saint can be started, but for John Paul II, the process has accelerated since his death in 2005. The process for Mother Teresa become Santu also being accelerated, and she has been beatified in 2003, six years after his death. The doctrine of the Catholic saints is a fallacy. Nothing in the Bible we find the Christians in the apostolic churches pray to the saints. The Bible instructs us to pray to God the Father through Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5). Praying to the ordinary human being, male or female, is blasphemy. In the New Testament, the term "saints" (saint) is applied to all Christians who are truly born again, not to a special group (Acts 9:13, 32, 41; 26:10, etc..). Even Christians are flesh in Corinth were called saints (2 Cor. 1:1). Christians are born again is not a saint because they are without sin or live a very pious, their saints (saints) because they have a Savior who does not sin that He has removed all their sins before God through the sacrifice in our place once and for all (Wow . 1:5, 6; 1 Pet. 2:9, 10). In the presence of God, through Jesus Christ, the believer is "holy and without blemish and without spot" (Col. 1:22). This is the reason we can be called a saint or saints. Praise God's holy name!
