All of these pillars were defined and articulated by the Reformers in opposition to the errors of Romanism. This fifth pillar likewise stands in contradistinction to the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church.
However, the Reformers believed that the saints canonised by the Roman Catholic Church, along with the Popes, and the ecclesiastical hierarchy are not worthy of the honour or the glory that was accorded them. It should not be the human individual that is exalted for their good works, but rather praise and glory ought to be given to God alone who is the author and finisher of the faith of His people and who is the Sanctifier of His people and source of their good works.
By Him all things are; through His power, wisdom and goodness, all things are directed and governed; and to Him as their last end all things proceed. Why is this so? To Him must all the glory be for evermore, Psalm 115:1: Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.
There is no room for the Church or the Pope or the saints or anyone or anything else to have any glory. God in Christ is to have all the glory. Well may we say with 1 Chronicles 29:11: Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
 The chief end and sole intention of those who have experienced God’s saving grace is therefore to bring glory to Him. The true believer desires to do all things to the glory of God, 1 Corinthians 10:31: Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God; Revelation 4:11: Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Our happiness or contentment or ease of live or absence of trials is not the primary motive in all things. Rather it is the glory of God!
