As I also say-it's not up to me to make your argument for you.
That's your problem

You listen to sinful men to teach you. I'm taught by God's Word.

So, your self-recognition of your own sainthood is fine and just, but others recognizing someone other than themselves is "wrong".
Got it.
Impeccable logic, as always, chuck.
It is from God's Word Danny...not mine.

You're then teaching yourself, and you are sinful as any man is.

My teachers are sinful, you aren't.

You can declare yourself a saint; the Church recognizing a siant is "wrong".

Is that about right?

Martin Luther promoted the notion you speak of. I don't ascribe to his beliefs on the subject.
Still, the Church does not decide who is an dis not a saint. They recognize saints. Ignore this fact all day if you will, but it's still the truth and formulating an argument based on a faulty assumption is the hallmark of an idiot.
We get it Dan

the vatican looks at people like popes and their self righteous works and recognizes them as saints.

God recognized me as a saint because of repentance and faith in Christ and it absolutely had nothing to do with what I had done on my own.

it's all clear now.

I can play along. One is recognized for their self righteous works.
Pope John Paul II's life is characterized by self-righteous works?

I've not encountered this premise previously.

Care to support the claim somehow?

Again, what "self-righteous" work or works do you speak of on part of the late Pope?

Is it "self-righteous" to point where one declares themself a saint by virtue of one's own acts, a la chuck?

You canonized yourself by declraing your faith in God. You initiated it, right?

The roll of saints isn't exclusive to Popes.

There goes that, doesn't it?

You don't have to be Catholic to be a Saint. You just have to be in Heaven. There are plenty of non Catholics up there.
If we are in Christ,we are grafted in. He is the Vine,we are the branches,there is no denomination or identity to any certain religious affiliation.It all has to do with a PERSON,His life,arrest,scourging,crucifix ion,death and Resurrection."In Him we live and have our being." It is not thus saith the: Presbyterians,Assemblies of God,Quakers,Baptists,Roman Catholics,Orthodox,or Anglicans,OR whoever else claims to believe in Him,It is Written in the Word,and we believe it,we live it,and we walk with H I M(The Firstborn of all Creation."

"born again" literally means "born from above." a spiritual transformation. New birth, being born again, is an act of God whereby eternal life is imparted to the person who believes (2 Corinthians 5:17; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3; 1 John 2:29; 3:9; 4:7; 5:1-4, 18). John 1:12,13 indicates that "born again" also carries the idea "to become children of God" through trust in the name of Jesus Christ.

Before that we are spiritual dead, when we are born again, we pass from death into life, in a sense we go from the devils realm and enter in to Gods heavenly realm.

Come on Danny...

Eph 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.

How do you recognize a saint Dan. Only God knows the heart of man.
John Paul II was sold out to Maryism.
So unless He recanted, and cofessed his sins before God, he is not in heaven.
John Paul II lead a lot of people away from God to Mary, all the prayers and Glory that belonged to God alone went to her.
The Bible clearly says God shares His Glory with no one.
Sorry Dan, I don't think that makes a person a candidate for sainthood
But, you just told me that all whom God has chosen are saints-here and in heaven.

Now, you're holding the late Pope up to a Heavenly qualification test that you wouldn't dream of applying to yourself.

How do you know he didn't confess? Why would you think he didn't?

What DO you actually believe on the subject? Pick one, please.

What "self-righteous" works is the Pope guilty of?

You've only made the claim one half-dozen times. Just provide one "self-righteous" act you believe he's guilty of.
