Why pray to saints that lived during and after the time of Christ, but not those who lived before the Messiah?
In Job 19:25, Job said “I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth.”
Obviously, Job knew Christ. So isn’t he a saint too?
In John, 8:56, Jesus said “Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.”
So doesn’t Abraham fit into the category of “saint?”
I realize that they weren’t Roman Catholic, but then again they were the true church… Your thoughts?
