The Biblical definition of Faith

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1

"1After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

2And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? 3And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. 4And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. 5And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. 6And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness" is an example of saving faith.

Abraham is an example: " He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness."

Bible believing Christians are fully persuaded that God sent forth his Son to die for our sins according to the scriptures. That he was buried, and rose again three days later alive and that eternal life is found only in Him.

The evidence that you speak of IS the RESURRECTION.

Jesus Christ said: " A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign (evidence); and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed."

"For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."

Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
