The Greek word for saints is an interesting one. It is the word “hagios” and means “most holy thing” so a saint is a holy person but wait, aren’t all men sinners, even after they are saved? Yes, that’s true but God sees us as having Jesus own righteousness because Christ became sin for us so that when the Father now sees us, He sees us as having the righteousness of Jesus Christ (2 Cor 5:21). What about those who are saved or justified by faith in the Old Testament? Does God considered them saints too? The Hebrew word used in the Old Testament for saint is “chaciyd” which means “faithful, kind, godly,” and “holy one” so we see that the use of the word saint essentially means the same thing in both the Old and New Testament and that is “holy ones.” There is yet another Hebrew word for saint and it is “qadowsh” which again means “sacred, holy, holy one” and “set apart.” When believers are called and saved we are sanctified or “set apart for holy use” which is what sanctified means. So the Bible mentions believers in both the Old and New Testament as saints.

“Hey, I am a new student and my name is Kerington Carter. I enjoy this online school very much. I accepted and changed so much turning my life over to Mary. I traveled and have failes trying to attend classes once a week, even to get a baptism. I ended up, laugh out loud, getting baptised in other regular christian churches twice this year in her name, with out anyone knowing. I carry the rosary. When I took this exam and further more lessons has helped me as a woman of christ. I now see a christian preference and strength knowing how to better understand, comunicate, pray and learn. This equal oportunity has just flabergasted my spirit and christian life. Thank you for having this loving site for your mothers, and daughters like myself. Love always, Kerington Carter ”→Read Less
