    There is no scriptures that teaches, except the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal savior, I here men say that, and it hurts my heart,

    Acts 2; 38 Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost for the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to ALL them afore off,

    ...the word saint translates into believer, pure and simple... all believers

    This is a response to Jackie Thomas regarding verse 15 who are the saints? Paul was speaking of the christians in the church. When we truly accept Jesus as our LORD and Saviour we are Saints set apart from this world.
  • Dennis
    To the question, "Who are the saints?" let me respond as follows: Saints are not some special class/group/subset of believers but are actually any who have trusted the Lord Jesus and are born again. See Philippians 1:1 for a proof text. Here you find mentioned those who makes up the church, saints, plus the two offices delineated in the New Testament for each local church; bishops and deacons.
  • Bro J Lee
    A saint is a person who is recognized as having an exceptional degree of holiness, or likeness to God.
