Source, Center, and Basis of Faith

What is the basis of faith?

“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17.

 

By what principle is genuine faith actuated?

Fruits of Faith

 

What relation does faith bear to knowledge?

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what is visible.” Hebrews 11:3.

To what parts of the ancient armor is faith compared?

 

“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” Ephesians 6:16. “But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.” 1 Thessalonians 5:8. 

 

What chapter in the Bible is devoted to faith?

The eleventh chapter of Hebrews. In verses 33 to 38 are summarized the victories of the heroes of faith.

What is the ultimate purpose of faith?

“For you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.” 1 Peter 1:9.

 

What Moody Said

Moody said that God put the offer of salvation in so simple a way that the whole world could grasp it. Everyone can believe. A cripple might not be able to visit the sick, but he can believe. A man who cannot see is unable to do many things, but he can believe. A deaf man cannot hear, but he can believe, Even a dying man can believe. Salvation has been placed within the reach of all, the young and old, the foolish and the brilliant, the rich and poor, the high and the low. All may have it if they truly believe.
