The Vatican has just announced that it will declare Mother Teresa to be a saint on September 4th. I’ve written about Mother Teresa several times in the past so I won’t go on at length but I will repeat a few points:
- The Catholic concept of a “saint” is not Biblical. All those who accept Jesus Christ as Savior are saints.
- Nowhere in the Bible does it mention a believer praying to anyone other than to God. Praying to dead people is heretical; a man-made, anti-Biblical tradition.
- Mother Teresa, like all faithful Catholics, believed she needed to merit her salvation. Diaries published after her death revealed she had no spiritual peace.
- Mother Teresa stated many times that she believed pagan religions were legitimate pathways to God (see “The Myth of Mother Teresa” below).
Many people have done many charitable acts over the centuries but Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. Believers who turn a blind eye to all of this serious error in the interest of “Christian unity” become a part of the lie.
“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” – John 4:23-24
