Lou, dude, you are a passionate man and I appreciate that! I just don't have ALL of the answers, okay.:) (Maybe I pretend I do sometimes..lol..hahaa) That little bit about "saints" and "sinners" and Jesus, comes from a book by Philip Yancey, called "What's So Amazing About Grace?" (It doesn't put down the Scriptures, just asks a lot of questions.) I don't have a copy of the book, though. I am not sure if these are Saints in the Catholic tradition, or what? I sort of doubt it, though.
I'll see if I can find more info for you.

Thanks for your thoughts...
Jay
