I QUOTE; "Faith is : the reseption of divine revelation, so that God/YHWH Himself is believed, to think His thoughts."
"The gift of faith is infallibly applied by the Spirit, kept in faith by the power of Yah so as to persevere to the end, guaranteeing salvation"
In faith the moment a soul is brought before Yah everything is changed and tht is the effect of His power, making things so present that they should be real to the soul.
So this is opposed to an intellectual understanding or the accumulation of facts, figures, dates, times and perhaps even experiences(?).
True faith is that which believes what Yah has said because He has said it and for no other reason.."Oh, ye of little faith"
If the attributes of Yah are "all knowing", "all powerful", present everywhere all knowledge will eventuate if the focus through faith is on Him.
As for the fallibility of mankind that is self evident so who on this earth is without fault, weakness, ego, fear. Who do you know of any creed who is logsuffering, all knowing, patient, just, kind, wise, incorruptible, merciful, gracious, obedient, free from error, pure, morally incorruptible, responsible, perfect, nearly Forgot LOVING?
AND the Christian Church today is in a state of APOSTASY i.e. it has deserted its cause which it initially championed, salvation, for riches, for power, for acceptance, and is in a state of moral corruption, depravity, because of this.
AND THERE ARE PLENTY OF HYPOCRITES AROUND SO YOU SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO FIND MANY TRUE BELIEVERS DESPITE THE OUTARD SHOWINGS...unfortunately but that's life.
The whole of Creation is in a state of turmoil,and will be until the time when there is the final separation of good and evil;
