Patron Saints

Bible Questions Answered:
“What about Patron Saints?”
Enrico/ Syracuse, Italy

Bible Answer:

Bible Texts:

The idea of Patron Saints designated to be our advocate, guide or protector, is a man made idea, “not,” found in The Word of God.

Hebrews 12:1 KJV
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Here, the Apostle Paul, refers to the fact that many, with interest are watching the affairs of mankind, and that with great interest. They, though unheard, cheer us on.

Even the angels watch with keen interest, desiring to understand all that they see.

I Peter 1:12 KJV
Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with The Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

We do the better, when we find The Truth, not in hand down human decrees and traditions of men, but in the source of all Truth, The Word Of God.

Acts 17:10,11 KJV
10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received The Word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Herein now is what the precious Word Of The Lord says regarding, advocacy, guidance, and protection.


I Timothy 2:3-6 NLT
3 This is good and pleases God our Savior,
4 who wants everyone to be saved and to understand The Truth.
5 For,There is one God and one Mediator* who can reconcile God and humanity—
The Man Christ Jesus.
6 He gave His life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.

*Mediator-Greek: Mesites (Mes-ee-tace): A Reconciler Intercessor: mediator.

 Hebrews 7:24-26 KJV24 But this Man (Jesus Christ), because He continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
25 Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing 
He ever liveth to make intercession for them.
26 For such an High Priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
Hebrews 8:1,6 NLT
1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an High Priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of The Majesty in the heavens;
6 But now hath He obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also He is The Mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

Hebrews 9:14,15,24 NLT
14 Just think how much more The Blood Of Christ will purify our consciences from sinful deeds so that we can worship The Living God. For by the power of The Eternal Spirit, Christ offered Himself to God as a Perfect Sacrifice for our sins.
15 That is why He is the one who Mediates a new covenant between God and people, so that all who are called can receive the eternal inheritance God has promised them. For Christ died to set them free from the penalty of the sins they had committed under that first covenant.
24 For Christ did not enter into a holy place made with human hands, which was only a copy of the true one in heaven. He entered into heaven itself to appear now before God on our behalf.

Hebrews 12:22-24 NLT
22 " have come to Mount Zion, to the city of The Living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless thousands of angels in a joyful gathering.
23 You have come to the assembly of God’s firstborn children, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God Himself, who is The Judge over all things. You have come to the spirits of the righteous ones in heaven who have now been made perfect.
24 You have come to Jesus, the one who Mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel.

I John 2:1,2 NLT
1 My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate who pleads our case before The Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous.
2 He Himself is The Sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.
