|You Are A Saint Through Christ. by bloodofthelamb(m): 8:35pm On Jun 30, 2018|
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the SAINTS which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus(Ephe 1:1.
Dear Father thank you for your "eternal truth" which is your power unto salvation. I pray as we believe may you confirmed it in our lives. Amen!
God has made us saints through Christ. We're the saints of God through Christ Jesus. You don't need to be canonized by mortal men before you could be a saint. You don't need to die before you can become a saint.
Believers in Christ Jesus are saints. While those who have not yet believe in Him can also become saints through simple faith in Christ Jesus. Our good works cannot make us saints, neither can our puny effort do. Jesus is the author of our sainthood. In Him all humanity have a chance to become saints of God.
It is foolishness to believe that the puny declaration of men can establish someone as a saint. Say no to the doctrine of men.
Say no to the deceit and lies of the devil.
Keep believing and keep winning! Peace!

Dude, what's the meaning of Saint?
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by kristonium(m): 9:17am On Jul 01, 2018|
This is our heritage as believers in Christ
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by kayuseful: 9:20am On Jul 01, 2018|
Imustreturn:Not so sir/ma
A saint is anyone who has been sanctified by the blood of Jesus once and for all
not some morally upright walking folks
Dont get me wrong, walking upright is the norm for all saints (those washed), but walking upright does not make you a saint of God

I wonder, whether or not, self-professed catholics,
the likes of Ubenedictus, 9inches, Syncan, italo etcetera agree to the emboldened up there
and accept that believers dont need to be canonized or formally recognized as biblical saints
TheLoneCitizen:As we have worn the likeness of the man who was made from the dust of the earth,
we will also wear the likeness of the man who came from heaven.
- 1 Corinthians 15:49
The biblical meaning of saints means "Set apart"
and implies, a set of people, different and/or distinct, as in, due to, having a likeness of nature with God
and so, set apart from others because of the fact of being special to God
Saints, have swapped the likeness of nature with Adam, for a likeness of nature with God
1 Corinthians 15:49 above, is a future entitlement

No matter what happened on the pitch in the first half, the second half can switch and that is what determines who wins. This second half of the year will be in your favour. God will condition everything to favour you and perfect all that concerns you. Welcome to July and the second half of 2018.
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by Ramos16(m): 9:24am On Jul 01, 2018|
Leave that guy to be spewing rubbish from his mouth, I am pretty sure he did not check the dictionary meaning before opening his filthy mouth, all these people always trying to look for religious difference to attacks others on, let him not face his own salvation. Rubbish
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by Ramos16(m): 9:25am On Jul 01, 2018|
Dude, just shut up your mouth, you don't know what you are talking about. Go study hard.

All Christians are saints
1 Corinthians 6:11
And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 1:30
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
1 Corinthians 1:2
Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

Prove your points with scriptures pls
The OP has placed scriptures for all to see, at least
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by lexy2014: 9:30am On Jul 01, 2018|
TheLoneCitizen:I believe d question should have been "who is a saint"? and not "what is a saint"?
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by kayuseful: 9:31am On Jul 01, 2018|
Thats exactly the problem. You dashed for an english dictionary to understand the bible!
A dictionary is meant to tell you the meaning of a word as used in the contemporary world
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by Majorkeys(m): 9:32am On Jul 01, 2018|
Religion is the problem in Nigeria, the white people really played us well.
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by lexy2014: 9:32am On Jul 01, 2018|
Ramos16:u dont need 2 insult. If u don't agree with him, pls share from ur study. Ur insults haven't in any way invalidated him
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by Imustreturn: 9:37am On Jul 01, 2018|
kayuseful:how can u be a saint with only been washed by the blood?
If a pig is washed and the pig goes back to dirt is that pig clean? No
Once u believe in Christ in truth and in spirit!!!
And with morals of Christ your a true saint
God help us to make heaven.
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by TheLoneCitizen(m): 9:38am On Jul 01, 2018|
I know why I asked that question. The saints in that context(Eph 1:1) means Holy ones or righteous ones.
This was further proved right by the statement,"who are faithful in union with Christ."
I wanted to clear the misconception.
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by TheLoneCitizen(m): 9:40am On Jul 01, 2018|
Tell me a word in the Bible that has not been well defined in the 'worldly dictionary'. Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, brother.
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by pointstores(m): 9:42am On Jul 01, 2018|

How is that an insult, I rebuked him to not spread lies
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by Ramos16(m): 9:47am On Jul 01, 2018|
Hahaha, what are you talking about right now, how did you gain understanding of the bible, is Saint greek, aramaic, latin or English, should I dash to the bible to understand the meaning of "come and go"?
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by Ramos16(m): 9:51am On Jul 01, 2018|
My brother, help me tell them oh, I had my mouth wide opened when I read that, the passion with which people use to defend their believe, if they used that amount of passion to truly seek the truth the world will be a better place. People these days just want to hear things that always favour them, I don't blame them it is human nature.

|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by MuttleyLaff: 10:21am On Jul 01, 2018|
Ramos16:First you dash to a good bible concordance to find the meaning of the original greek or aramaic word used there in the bible
and thereafter, gain the proper understanding of word, in doubt of its real meaning
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by eagleonearth(m): 11:32am On Jul 01, 2018|
I hate it when even christians use this phrase "I'm not saying I'm a saint oo" every man who has experienced the second birth and has the Spirit of Jesus in him is a SAINT
Imustreturn:There you go wrong again. Once Christ saves you by washing your sins away with his precious blood, you're a saint already. It's now left for you to guide your crown lest you lose it. You now continue in God's way to maintain the sainthood.
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by oluwaahmed: 11:34am On Jul 01, 2018|
You are not wiser than the Saints of old who spread the gospel to gentiles like us. In Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, Oriental Orthodox, and Lutheran doctrine, all of their faithful deceased in Heaven are considered to be saints, but some are considered worthy of greater honor or emulation,official ecclesiastical recognition, and consequently veneration, is given to some saints through the process of canonization in the Catholic Church or glorification in the Eastern Orthodox Church.
N/B- the eastern orthodox church is the oldest church in the world. It comprise churches set up by apostles Paul, Barnabas and other evangelical apostles who missioned in Greece, Mesopotamia and Anthioc, middle-east and Africa. The Ethiopian orthodox church also believes this. My question to modern day Pentecostals is where they get their knowledge of the word from? U can tell me it's only divinely inspired bcoz even Jesus 12 apostles did not understand about Christ even though they stayed with him. Sometimes u need the wisdom of someone to break down the scriptures for you, not only following literal writings which have been translated many times into different languages before eventually reaching English.
The height of foolishness is using the Bible compiled by orthodox to base your Pentecostal beliefs
|Re: You Are A Saint Through Christ. by Imustreturn: 11:37am On Jul 01, 2018|
eagleonearth:lol. U just said same thing.
Once your washed in his blood ur a saint. Would u want to go back to lose your saint hood? That's the example I gave and same thing u said bro..
Our utmost aim is making Heaven... That's it
