    Do Jesus and the Saints still matter?

    For Christians, Jesus has always been a distinguished figure and the Saints are clear manifestations of His love and example.  But as time goes by, it seems like Jesus and the Saints become obsolete too.  Is this really the case?

    Clearly, for all Christians, Jesus is the object of worship, so yes. As for the saints, for Catholics, saints are elevated and revered as those through whom God has manifestly moved, while for most protestants, the saints are seen as great examples of people of faith, and are certainly not as significant to worship, but that has been characteristic of protestants in general since the Reformation.

    God can not be obsolete, Jesus can not be obsolete, the Holly Spirit can not be obsolete. Jesus is a living Jesus. In fact the bible said "Jesus the same yesterday, today and forever more".

    The one who uphold this world, by the word of his power can not be obsolete. And his saints: those that believed in his name; those purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ can not be obsolete but their positive impact is being felt in every works of life: they are still relevant to our society and will always be as Jesus tarry.

    Since the Denver Bronco's and Tim Tebow are out of the Superbowl at this point and the Saints are out also, so to answer your question - No they do not matter.

    Jesus will always and must always be of the highest importance in the life of all Christians.
    The people, are the church and every member of the church, is seen by Christ as a "Saint". No one person does Christ elevate Higher. There is no scripture that permits any church to elevate any one member to any standing higher tha Christ's prophets and apostles who were chosen bu Christ himself.

    To Christians, Jesus can never become obsolete.  He is clearly the object of worship.  The relevance of the Saints is not as prevalent even among many Catholics today.  They are examples of faith, but not objects of worship for Protestants.  Therefore, they have relevance, but not near the relevance of Jesus.
