So true. There's that part in the Bible where Jesus' chastises Peter for sinking because he had too much faith.

Then there's that part where he says that faith can't move mountains.

After that he ends up being crucified for something he didn't really believe in.

If you have any trouble finding these verses, me and trinity are consulting the New Jerusalem Russ translation.

but you know I'm right

faith is powerful

but faith without action is useless

let me put it to you another way

my faith provides me with divine insight

but if I'm not willing to act on it

it's not much good to me is it?

Are we going to have our own schism here, lol? Pretty sure this question has already been discussed. It's a debate about semantics. If you really have faith, you're compelled to act. By definition, you don't really have faith if you're not willing to act on it. It's also important to remember that sometimes faith compels us to do what looks like nothing. Israel wanted a king to free them from the Romans and they got a poor Nazarene who accepted death on a cross.

It's also important to note that actions can be but aren't necessarily proof of faith.

Would it be too late to admit that that is all I was really trying to do with this little exercise? Show people here that I really do practice what I preach. I didn't figure many would want to drive this far in land but if we don't show the world that our Faith makes us different, then we are no different than the world.

I was sincere in my offer to help but more than that, I wanted to show others that my faith is stronger than my fear.
