If we really believe in one true God, then why most of us still worship saints?
hmmm interesting question. but then again, for all i know these are religious activities set before we are born. and even if we all know one God, it doesnt mean we can eliminate saints for they are model of how possible prayer and dedication to God can be done!
its a mistake, none is to be worshiped apart from the Lord....saints re neither mediums nor gods
each religion has their own way of saying this and that saints are great and should be workship. Most importantly is their saints don't tell them do bad deeds. There is only one GOD almighty. We shouldn't criticize nor argue whose who is the greatest. Do what u deem fit.
There's only one God and He is above all things. Only Catholics and others of the same doctrine that worship saints. God the Almighty is also referred to as Elohim, Jehovah or Yahweh.Thanks to you.
We don't worship saints. They are models to emulate, their lives showcase how a believer should act. However, as history shows, a lot of people seem to worship them. Read the different prayers for these saints, nothing is said about worshiping them. Some prayers are like this: God the Father in Heaven please help us to be like saint . . . . . and by his example we will worship you, in the name of Jesus, we pray. There are many forms of course.
yes i agree sir that we believe in one true GOD..I dont know sir why they still worships saints or rebolto..because we dont have that in my church because im IGLESIA NI CRISTO and for me its not good to pray in saints because you are not praying in GOD in heaven but in the saints..nice question sir

In 1 Cor 15-54 Saint paul states that the Church in heaven and the Church on earth are one. If therefore I can ask you as a brother or sister to pray for me here on earth why can I not ask you to intercede on my behalf in heaven?
To say that we as Christians and specifically as Catholics worship Saints is to be ignorant of our teaching. As Christians we worship and declare the one true God within the mystery of the Holy Trinity.
To ask a saint to pray for us is to acknowledge that an individual lives on in Christ after death, in fact it is a testimony to this reality. Those who are declared Saint by the Catholic Church are also examples of how God can transform and use an individual. When we read the lives of the Saints, we learn ways in which we can co-operate with God in every age.
As Catholic/Christian we hold onto what Paul relates as 'the sure hope of salvation. There are other Christian that believe that one is saved from the moment they acknowledge Jesus as Lord of their life. This fulfills two of the three pillars of Christian faith. Namely Faith and Love.
Catholics on the other hand believe in three pillars of faith - 'Faith, Hope and Love. We believe that one can deliberately with their free will choose to sin and separate themselves from God at any time during their Christian life - they can also choose to repent and this is why we have the sacrament of reconcilliation.
The Christian life is not easy to live, we need the support of the Holy Spirit and of our brothers and sisters in intercessory prayer both when they live as Church here on earth and most especially as they continue to live as Church in Heaven.
I have discovered that those who misunderstand how Catholics understand the saints have not taken the time to study our teachings. We do not pray to the dead we pray with the living on earth and in Heaven.

Do you believe non-religious people, who lead a good life, are still going to hell?One of my biggest frustrations with religion is the idea that, how you live your life is of no consequence if you do not accept god. For example, John Smith is a good christian man who helps people, obeys the law and...

Is praying to Mary & the saints, like Catholicism teaches an act of false worship?The Bible teaches us to worship God only (Ex. 20:3-5; Rev. 19:10); but the Roman Catholic Church teaches its adherents to pray to Mary and the saints. They even bow down to statues and pictures of them when they...

1st Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Why would the Apostle Paul need to explain that Adam was formed first and then Eve? Don’t we all know this? But the Church at Ephesus was taught a lie about...

I don't think so. I believe that the sub-conscious mind already knows there is no god.The flight and fight mechanism is the driving force behind the need for a god, but the mind already knows it is a self preservation mechanism the conscious mind sets up to cope with the fear of dying.That is why...
