But I don’t think that answer is helpful, healthy, or even all that biblical.
- Because if faith is belief – what happens to it when you doubt?
- Because if faith is belief – what happens if you believe the wrong things, or have been taught the wrong things?
- Because if faith is belief – does it matter how you act as long as you believe?
These are some of the difficulties with “faith as belief”
So that’s what we want to explore and clear up on Sunday, by looking at Hebrews 11. Hebrews 11 is the classic chapter on faith, but it presents a different view of faith that differs from “faith as belief”
So that’s where we are going, but before we get there why not read Hebrews 11 yourself. It’s a great chapter, and it’s one that not only is about faith, but asks us to put our faith into practice. Which as it will turn out, is what faith is all about.
