What is Faith?

On this week’s episode of Theology Simply Profound, from Acts 28, Rob and Bob discuss everything from snake handling to saving faith… in reality, the discussion lands primarily on the nature of faith. How does saving faith differ from the belief that UFOs will one day arrive to wisp the faithful away to a better place? Hmm. Essentially, is the faith of a Christian the same kind of faith we find in a cult?

Theology Simply Profound considers how even the simple truths God has revealed to us in his Word are deeply profound. Reformed theology need not be for scholars alone, it is for every believer. Browse more episodes from this program or subscribe to the podcast feed.

So, did you mean to say, that the quantity of our faith increases, or does our resting in Him increase because of the faith that He gifted us. Surely, the Word increases our faith, when defined from our perspective, yet it appears to me that that such increase is based on our trusting more and resting more, not on receiving more.

We cry out today as the disciples cried out in Luke 17 for the Lord to increase our faith. As Christians live, go through trials, read His Word, are increasingly sanctified our faith becomes stronger. No this is not quantity as if you have one ounce of faith and then you get another ounce and you have two ounces. But it is an increase in the exercising of faith. We believe more, we trust, more, we can handle harder trials in life. Our faith is greater than it was when we were younger in the faith.
