Undefiled Faith: Book 2

For so long, the world, from the time of Adam up until the present, has defiled faith and its meaning to the point where the only time it is exercised is when we ask Jesus to come into our lives by faith (Rom. 10:9–10) and that’s it! Faith has become defiled when man ties worldly principles to it and puts standards and limitations to it (I’ll be getting to this in the book) so that man’s strength alone takes over faith. Today, many believers have never hoped for something and waited for it by faith. It has never come across their minds to believe God could grant what they need because they think they are required by Him to accomplish what they need by their own strength. Man has learned to achieve what he requires by his strength, so to wait for it would be considered, today, irresponsible and crazy.
