Isaac Bickerstaff -
A declaration of sainthood is supposed to be an acknowledgement of what is already true. The list of saints is by no means meant to be exhaustive either. I am not sure if a declaration of sainthood is meant to be infallible in the sense that further information might theoretically disqualify a person from that declaration.
As an aside, referring to God with a lower case "g" is simply incorrect English. Using the correct form of the word in no way obligates you to follow, worship, or otherwise declare a belief in what the word refers to.
Not sure what you mean by an acknowledgement of what is already true. My question still applies. If it is true, how did it become true? Did the current pope tell god that it was true or did god tell the pope who to publicly declare a saint?
As for my grammer, the christian god is no different than any other god. When you talk about Zeus as a god, do you capitalize the word "god", or do you capitalize the word Zeus? Would you be happier if I referred to your god by his proper name of Elohim or Yahweh?
If it makes you feel better, since I'm talking about the christian god, feel free to replace "god" with "Yahweh." Happy now?
Now kindly answer my question.
