Faith is a New Life, Not a Religion

Submitted by Stephen Winters

 

Faith is not about a religion, but a life to be lived. It speaks of the way that we live our lives. It involves putting aside our old life and learning to live a new kind of life.

This causes them to look upon us as enemies and for them not to trust us.

When someone uses the words “God told me… “ or “the Lord led me” etc., it is very easy to use these words to shut people up from asking more details.
