If all christians are saints, then that body includes the likes of Hitler. Do you really believe that Hitler is a saint?
To make sainthood into a sports star status demeans the power of the Gospel of Grace that makes all true believers into saints. THAT is an amazing miracle!
It was an analogy; I guess you missed the point. Like secularist children look up to sports stars, Catholics look up to those who have been declared saints. Their examples offer encouragement to strive harder against oppressors. Does that wording make more sense?
“If all christians are saints, then that body includes the likes of Hitler. Do you really believe that Hitler is a saint?”
A Christian is someone who has entrusted himself to the Gospel of grace - this is never alone. The new life of Christ always produces a godly life, marked by works. All Christians are saints, as the Holy Bible addresses them.
I see no confirmation of godliness or good works in the life of Hitler, maybe you do?
