The doctrinal foolishness of Roman Catholicism may had been and had continued to be at a loose especially when Popes John XIII and John Paul II were canonized as saints.
This proposition is based on the premise that sainthood of any person is not within the authority of any human being to decide, as technically, the reckoning standard as basis to say that a person lived a saintly life is divine. Accordingly, it is only within the divine authority to judge.
In other words, the Papacy’s declaration of sainthood is questionable and can be considered as plain and simple usurpation of the divine authority. Besides, Roman Catholicism is showing more proof as a violator of God’s commandment than being a divine representative.
To stress, there was no delegation of this divine authority to judge or declare the sainthood of a person to any man because ‘judging’ others is scripturally being discouraged.
Take note that Roman Catholicism extends this sainthood proceedings only to Roman Catholics to the exclusion of persons in other religions. Also, it is only extended to selected few.
Thus, when it (the Papacy) judges one as ‘saint’, it incidentally judges the others as ‘not saints’. Even judging everybody as saint is also scripturally discouraged.
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. (Matthew 7:1-29, ESV)
The other danger of the sainthood proceedings of the Roman Catholicism is the tolerance of idolatry and promotion of the same. The canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II affirmatively stressed this point.
As leaders of Roman Catholicism, these Popes were given opportunity to discard the traditional idolatry in the form of images of the cross, images of alleged Mother Mary, Jesus Christ and the saints, which only used their respective name in vain. Instead of correcting however, these two Popes just slept on their opportunity to change the tradition.
Worst, some Catholic sectors are not favorable to have Pope John Paul II as saint as he is being accused of protecting pedophile priests. In fine, their canonization is a symbolic tolerance of Roman Catholicism idolatry and oral sex mentality or sodomy, which are discussed in this site as the causes of the end.
