I don't know whether or not other religions call those who went before them saints or not. There are many religions that worship the dead who are sometimes family members and believe that they are somehow helping to lead them in their life. This practice is not Christian practice and is not supported by our church. We do not support any form of sainthood when it comes to the dead. The bible says that we are made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. This is found in Hebrews 10. It is not important that someone is called a saint what is important is that through Christ we are made Holy. In regards to miracles it is only through the power of God that a miracle can happen. If it comes from a different religion then it is not of God and it was not his power that did it. It was a work of the Devil to deceive people into believing a false doctrine.
