The word 'Saint' is first
used in Chronicles II Verse 6:41, then in the book of Daniel the prophet
and then starting in Acts 9:13 with the first mentioning of Saints in the
A 'Saint' as per definition
in the bible denotes 'a person whom responded to God's calling and followed
God'. For Christians this is to Repent
and Baptize. For thus they are called to do.
In the old testament this
was to respond to the calling of God as did Moses and Aaron, and in the
new testament this is to acquire faith through reading of the gospel; to
repent; and to baptize in water - responding to the calling of Christ.
All Christians who come to Christ through repentance and baptism are 'Saints',
as stated by God and Christ.
Example: ( CO1
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 their's and our's: )
Now, here, as in the priesthood,
we also have a 'Sainthood of men' introduced by the Catholic church.
Any person whom executed their will extraordinary well, as per their judgement,
including those who plotted and/or committed murder, they awarded
'Sainthood'. This, by no means is the 'Sainthood in Christ' but that
of men. So, here, as they attempt to steal the 'Holy
Priesthood (which is dead)', they also attempt to steal the 'Holy Sainthood',
but oh! the Lord your God, even from the beginning, has called man and
woman like me to open your eyes and shed light upon the truth - The
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ - read it.

I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my

CO1 6: 1 Dare
any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust,
and not before the saints?
CO1 6: 2 Do
ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall
be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

So, remember that the dictionary
interpretation of 'Saint' is one of modern men and WRONG. The fools describe
a. Abbr. St. or S. Christianity
A person officially recognized (recognition is from God alone),
especially by canonization, as being entitled to public veneration (Christians

b. A person who has died
and gone to heaven.
c. Saint A member of any
