If you are a Christian, then according to the Holy Scriptures, you are a saint.
This page refers to the ‘famous’ saints from the past who tred the Cumbrian sod.
Historical references demonstrate that the ancient saints were extraordinary. Then
again, in ancient days there were no reporters from the secular press more then willing
to rummage through a trash can for a morsel of scandal, or to misrepresent the truth,
to further their own sad careers and eventual demise into an eternity of hell.
To-day’s main Christian players may be even more remarkable than the ancient ones,
because they shine in a world where darkness often comes robed in white newspaper
Our leaders are truly remarkable, but nevertheless, the truth is that every person
who gives their life to Christ is extraordinary, no matter how weak they are, no
matter how many mistakes they make, no matter how inadequate they feel - as long
as they genuinely want to follow Jesus and are trying to do so - they are saints
and they will have eternal and everlasting life.
