“Here we go with that tired saw: I pray to a man, but it is not to a man, but a man who isnt a man because he is a man, so that means we dont pray to people becuase we are praying to men.”
I ask the saints to intercede for me. It’s just that simple.
“Let it go Vlad, you guys pray to men and that is blasphemous.”
I ask the saints to intercede for me and it is not blasphemous.
“GeronL is right on the money. Read the nuns claim.”
GeronL is not right and not orthodox. Neither are you.
If your definition of "orthodox" is being transfixed by the bizarre, demonic doctrines of Rome, I am grateful to the God of Israel that He has spared me from being sucked into that swirling vortex of error.
I prefer to be biblical and will leave the praying to humans to those, as Peter wrote, are, "...springs without water, and mists driven by a storm, for whom the black darkness has been reserved. For speaking out arrogant words of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error, promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this is he enslaved."
