Pope proclaims 'dispenser of mercy' Mother Teresa a saint
Mother Teresa of Calcutta, known as the "saint of the gutters" during her life, was declared a saint of the Roman Catholic Church by Pope Francis on Sunday, fast-tracked to canonization just 19 years after her death.

Tens of thousands of pilgrims packed St. Peter's Square at the Vatican for a service to honor the tiny nun, who worked among the world's neediest in the slums of the Indian city now called Kolkata and become one of the most recognizable faces of the 20th century.

A Nobel peace laureate, her legacy complements Pope Francis's vision of a humble church that strives to serve the poor, and the festivities in her honor are a highlight of his Holy Year of Mercy, which runs until Nov. 8. ...

I think therein lies the issue, John, and I didn't realize who was doing the teaching in my last comment. Many Roman Catholics aren't even fully aware of Romes diverse doctrines, so it's not much of a surprise you were taught in a limited way, not really knowing the fullness of the churches doctrines. Romes ways and Romes doctrines, dogmas, and rituals, studying them, that is, isn't for the faint of heart because the system is not only confusing, but contradictory. Because nothing a Pope says fron his seat can ever be reverted or recinded, any and all nonscense the various popes spewed out over the years had to be absorbed by the church. This is the very reason they have to have professional, full time apologists on staff...to do their best to make it all fit, but the honest and learned, and those who even care, know better.

John Y,the book is not written from a Protestant perspective but from a Scriptural one by who was an RC and a very learned one as well.

I would refer you to an excellent informative sermon here on SermonAudio, taken largely from a 2007 book which published letters written by Teresa (and edited by an RC), by Rev Ian Brown: [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=940716541910]]]Mother Teresa A Miserable Tragedy[/URL]

I once presented the book "The Gospel According To Rome" by James McCarthy to a manager at a local restaurant,knowing that he was roman catholic, and he told me that that book was not allowed to be read.
Well that manager is totally off of his rocker for stating that he can't read any book that is from a Protestant perspective. I was not taught growing up not to read any book that is from a Protestant perspective. I was taught by my parents it was perfectly acceptable to read any book from a Protestant perspective.

John Y, helping one out is a nice thing to do, as more people should be willing to do so in how they can help out, by contributing. But what Mother Teresa held onto,that shaped & molded her life, was another gospel of damnation,that keeps the sinner in self-deception & moral bondage. As she said to be happy in ones own faith,as one lot is set out for them, weither one is Muslim, or a Hindu, & so on. Because we are all children of God.

That is contrary to Christ & His Word,for we have the same creator, yes, but only through spiritual adoption, does one become a regenerated spiritual child of God; Col 1:16, Jhn 1:12-13, Jhn 14:6, Luke 12:1-5.

Mother Teresa was against the Biblical doctrine of salvation & justification, that she clearly rejected, in being a follower of what Rome dectatited towards one.

It is a very loving book for RCs and it is very objective in its presentation of Scripture vs. RC Canons/traditions.
When there is a discrepancy between the 2,God's Word should be that which is embraced.
If His Word is fallible,then we have nothing and we are most miserable of all.
I would think that after all of the "good" works and time (19 years,for MT)...that RCs would see the folly of "sainthood" which is proclaimed by mere man.
The Gospel offers much more hope.
Open their spiritual eyes and ears,Lord!
It is only Truth which sets one free.

Mother Teresa was acting in the spirit of Jesus by helping out he poor. But it is ridiculous to believe that she was responsible for several miracles(The requirement to be declared a Catholic Saint) to happen.

I always felt granting one a saint was up to God

Maybe I'm wrong, not good to give the "church" attributes God alone possesses. Maybe if more people worked harder in indoctrinating people into the RCC we would have more saints?

Steve, why in the world wouldn't you, yourself have a strong bias against the Roman religious machine? Why wouldn't you pass judgement in such a provably false system? Why in the world would you ever defend such false, anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-biblical doctrines in any way by reserving judgement on what you know to be true about the churches diabolical ways? Sure, M. Teresa did plenty of good by the world's standards, there's no denying that, but she was also fully invested and spiritually corrupted by Romes way, which you know is far removed from God's way.
My original post was critique of Rome granting Sainthood, it was spliced and taken out of context by a poster having a hissy fit

Trying to help out others is a kind act to do & more people should be willing to step out of their own comfort zones & help others out. But from a Biblical application, everything that a unconverted fallen sinner does, is of sin. That it's impossible to please God in ones fallen condition one is in apart from the power of regeneration in & through Christ alone.

When we miss the boat of ones spiritual condition one is in apart from Christ. That really affects one reality,& what is truth, that mankind may look at ones outterly appearances, through ones actions, but the only true living God of the Bible, looks at ones, spiritual heart & mind. As their is none who are good, apart from Christ imputed righteousness alone.

& from all accounts Mother Teresa rejected the notion of Biblical salvation & embraced another foreign gospel of another kind, of Bad News & not great news of redemption & restoration amen.

SteveR, we can't tarnish what was black already, for people who cared to notice. Too many people treated her as a sacred cow. (Thanks to Hitchen's for pointing out that term. ). This site didn't though, [URL=http://www.ianpaisley.org/article.asp?ArtKey=puppet]]]http://tinyurl.com/gmye7sj (Hell's Puppet Beatified: The Unseen Hands Behind Mother Teresa Of Calcutta)[/URL]. from which, "Rome is racing ahead with the fast track beatification of the bent little nun with a white and blue striped habit, known to the world as Mother Teresa....John Paul II is the most rabid saint making pope of all time. His Apostolic Constitution Divinus perfectionis Magister of the 25 January 1983 swept away the 17th century red tape and made possible this frenzy." ---Clive Gillis

Saint making is a big and profitable business for the Romish Church, " It is Jesus who will separate the sheep from the goats on judgment day (Mt. 25:32), not the investigators of the Catholic Church." ---[URL=https://xcjournal.org/the-errors-of-catholicism/canonization/]]]http://tinyurl.com/z8njvua (Canonization)[/URL]

Why Steve haven't you worked it out yet what a "saint" - really is??

Romans 1:7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, CALLED TO BE SAINTS: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the SAINTS according to the WILL of GOD.

Romans 12:13 Distributing to the necessity of SAINTS; given to hospitality.

Romans 15:25 But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the SAINTS.

PS: Steve I am a saint - BUT please don't pray to me!!!

"declared a saint of the Roman Catholic Church by Pope Francis on Sunday, fast-tracked to canonization just 19 years after her death."

The papists are getting so desperate to "fast track" as many "gods" up there as they can pray to.

That's because they are taught by the Vatican that they cannot trust God for everything.

And the fact is that it is true - The Romans can't trust God.

Yes, I'm glad that Observer posted some sites that I haven't yet.

I particularly liked the, [URL=http://tinyurl.com/glht9fw]]]http://tinyurl.com/glht9fw (Was Mother Teresa A True Christian? (PDF))[/URL] by David Cloud. It isn't short unfortunately. Oh, being PDF it's more of a pain for Android devices to handle, then a desktop would. If you want a very quick answer to the title, then read, [URL=http://tinyurl.com/jsdkc45]]]http://tinyurl.com/jsdkc45 (Is a Catholic Christian an Oxymoron?)[/URL] Unfortunately she was even more Catholic and less Christian than some who belong to that bunch, [URL=http://tinyurl.com/zb3tfm3]]]http://tinyurl.com/zb3tfm3 (Is the One True Church Roman Catholic?)[/URL]

"...she only proclaims to be providing people with a Catholic death, and, second, because of the enormous amounts of money mainly donated to rather than raised by her Order. We've been unable to audit this - no one has ever demanded an accounting of how much money has flowed in her direction. With that money she could have built at least one absolutely spanking new, modern teaching hospital in Calcutta without noticing the cost."--[URL=http://tinyurl.com/hh4vsdt]]]http://tinyurl.com/hh4vsdt (Christopher Hitchens On Mother Theresa)[/URL]

Hi Observer; thanks for posting the links. Good information, some of which I already knew, but much I did not.

Have a blessed day in the Lord.
