The Catholic Church looks at sainthood much more closely. For your information and study:

There are three steps to sainthood -- being pronounced, vernerable, blessed and saint.

It involves time and study. Please read the following links for more info.

Salvation, I understand the process. I also understand that it isn’t Biblical. It is an addition to the Bible.

I simply pointed out that God, in the Holy Scriptures, calls ALL BELIEVERS saints. There are no Christians He doesn’t refer to as saints.

Biblically, there isn’t a process, isn’t a distinction and after death, it is too late.

Beyond that, it contradicts the specific words God inspired, recorded and preserved.

I realize there are churches that add to what is declared.
