Biblical faith is the complete dependence on God's ability to work on our behalf. Biblical faith needs no explanation or evidence that God is working. It simply accepts that God is well able and that are His promises are more sure than anything we can imagine.

Mark B
I was just about to say on another thread.... that If I have never heard a good example of a servant of God. I have just read it in your expression of the difference between christians and a servant (as I see the question), it is infact the best answer on every post you wrote.


PRAY TELL ME WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

Do you not know that to be loved by the world is to be hated by God to be hated by the world is to be loved by God.

Faith is not born from our interpretation (and manipulation) of the Word', faith comes from the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth.

---Amen brother.
Romans 10 (All)
vs 17...So then faith cometh by hearing,


Hearing comes by the Word of God

Id just like to wish everyone a Merry CHristmas and say my farewells.

I have discovered that over the past year I have been so wrapped up in doctrinal disputes that I havent grown much as a Christian. At times the frustration has ever caused me to backslide.
Its time to part from all the arguing.

I wish you all the best and please remember that the ONLY thing that matters is our faith in Jesus Christ. That is what saves us. Not whether or not we agree on all doctrinal matters.'

God bless you all and keep you safe.

Faith is action, actively doing God's will with the complete trust that Jesus is Almighty, and he is more than able to do above all that what we ask or think. Faith is knowing that what is impossible with man, is possible with God, for God can do All things and no thing is impossible with God.

//Biblical faith is believing the Word of God in the "TRUE CONTEXT" which it is written.//

Amen to this too.

Faith is not born from our interpretation (and manipulation) of the Word', faith comes from the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth.

Christian, very good answers you gave. I wanted to again make it clear for Kathr about faith that you did not mention.
First Paul says that even the beginning of faith, the disposition to seek salvation, is itself a work of grace and the gift of God. Paul says we are saved "through faith" that is, as the instrumental cause, but never once does he say that we are saved "on account of faith" that is, as the meritorious cause. That is why we read,
"by Grace have ye been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God" Eph. 2:8.

I agree with both Rob and Michael-e (only it is not too who, but to whom)

We cannot just accept, without question, every teaching we hear. I would say no one can correctly divide scripture without answering these questions (who, why, where...etc)

Though Jesus always taught the truth, not everyone who sought truth from Jesus received the same answers. His answer to the rich young ruler was different than to the lawyer who wanted to test Him, though both asked the exact same question. Jesus described the new birth differently to the woman at the well than to Nicodemus. Jesus spoke the truth, but did not give pat answers.

//This is done by asking the questions WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY, AND TOO WHO, 2 Timothy 2:14-19.//
Amen Rob
And this is earnest prayers of Paul that believers might have the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ (Eph. 1:17), that they
might know what is theirs in Christ (Eph. 1:18-23) and comprehend the breadth and length and depth and height of it! (Eph. 3:18).

Biblical faith is believing the Word of God in the "TRUE CONTEXT" which it is written.

This is done by asking the questions WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY, AND TOO WHO, 2 Timothy 2:14-19.

Biblical faith is not sitting under someones teaching, but never examing scripture to see if what they teach is indeed rue, Acts 17:11.

Their are many people who do what is written in Romans 1:25. These are the very people mentioned in 2 Peter Chapter 2, and 2 Corinthians Chapter 11.

1. "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6

2. "For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8,9

3. "Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law." Romans 3:27,28
