Any who deny Christ in any way are of the Enemy. Asking anyone but Christ to be your "intercessor" before God the Father is to explicitly deny the Truth of Jesus Christ.
Question for you - when Mary made intercession to Jesus for the young couple at the wedding feast at Cana (John 2:1-11), did Jesus know they were out of wine before Mary interceded and told him about it? (The answer, I believe you will agree, is "yes".) However, did that stop Him at that time from allowing Mary's intercession, or make him not act on her request?
If Mary or the Saints can "interceed" for us, then Christ's Work on the Cross was obviously left undone, eh?
Remembering that you weren't even here yet, and hadn't started sinning yet (at the time Christ was crucified), was Christ's Crucifixion appllied to you and your sins yet? In your own system of beliefs, is your own belief/acceptance needed (i.e., your own self-intercession), or does God's work alone cover you in any case, and save you irregardless, without any self-intercession at all on your own part?
Knock it off. Christmas is coming.
Do you know why Christmas is celebrated when it is, and who picked that date? (Hint: "Christ's Mass".) (Have a Blessed Christmas, by the way.)
