Faith is a powerful application that lends the strength of confidence to those who use it. Confidence is the true strength of faith. We can have confidence without faith but not faith without confidence. I choose confidence over faith because faith demands that a person believe without question.
Belief without question is its own injury and the confidence, of faith, carries this with it. It allows people to deny the underling question’s and yet bring the strength of confidence to bear in their lives. If it happens that a person puts their faith in what is true, the injury of faith is muted, and confidence is true.
There are many people who know this kind of faith. For me personally, I like to ask the question’s, and faith does not work.
With confidence I am able to accept Gods’ existance or not. I am confidant that no mater what I believe, thing’s remain as they are. I am free to believe in God, which I do. I do no religious thing, because, I have not found God there. Some people do.
I have lost confidence that someone else; past, present or future, should be my diplomat, in matter’s concerning God. God is available to all people always, or God does not exist.
Did God write a book? I know the tool’s used to write a book and who uses them. I have greater confidence in God than that.
The word of God. No hand writes it down. No eye reads it. No tongue speaks it. No ear hears it. None, escape it.
