From God’s Word we see that faith is the defining aspect in the lives of those who responded positively to God’s direct Words, believing what God said, even though they didn’t see it, trusting His word and acting in faith upon what he said, even though it was difficult and in some cases led to their death!
Unfortunately the term “faith” is widely misunderstood and misused today.
A few misunderstandings of faith:
- Will power to achieve your goals and dreams
- A real force or energy that needs to be harnessed
- Positive thinking “I’m just sure everything will be ok”
- Belief in your own subjective set of truth propositions that might your religious tastes. (You believe what’s good for you and I’ll believe what’s good for me.)
In this sermon I talk about some of our culture’s attacks upon the faith and I also show from God’s Word what real faith looks like.
