I think there are many that misunderstand this passage...Romans 10:17
King James Version
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

but for the sake of discussion, how do you think this passage fits into the discussion?
It means one must hear about God and Christ. Obviously you can't believe something you've never heard nor seen of.
i am a firm believer in the totality of scripture so lets add Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

to our understanding...if our faith is in our faith, who is our faith really in if He is the one that gave it to us?  And if HE is the one that gave it to us, then we must have heard HIS voice in order to have recieved it, whether it was from the Bible, a teacher, a preacher, a song, or just from the Spirit's whisper, or yell (lol)
Amen. I was thinking of those who never heard of Jesus or the words in scripture, like before Jesus walked the earth etc remote islands and deep jungles etc.

So, I thought that God speaks to us but would we instinctively "know" God has a Son? Who died for every person for remission of sins? That's why my statement and subsequent belief that MY faith is small and weak and we are actually saved by His blood and His faith. I believe that nothing I do or can ever do in the earth will "get me to heaven" which also reminds me of the thread I started about the Crowns awarded in heaven.
some time ago, Brian was telling me about a phenomena where all around the world there is a "God" story similar to the Christ...which reminds me of the passage that says we are without excuse.

The British Library has put some of the most famous religious texts online. Their new collection, Discovering Sacred Texts, is accessible to the public (www.bl.uk/sacred-texts/). It features nearly 300 texts that are sacred to a variety of religions, including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Zoroastrianism. For some of these texts, it is the first time they have been made available to the general public. Some highlights include the first complete Mishnah (from 1492), the Codex Sinaiticus (one of the earliest Christian Bibles, from the fourth century), and the Ma’il Quran (one of the oldest copies of the Quran, from the eighth century). Now anyone can explore these manuscripts—from anywhere in the world with internet access!

Thanks Mark, there are some good material within this link. While I have scanned over  several articles, I have also saved the link for future reference.

Thanks.

For all of us Theologians

St. Augustine of Hippo
St Augustine of Hippo Holy CardSaint Augustine of Hippo, a man of great intellect and one of the most important Church fathers, sought comfort in worldly pleasures but found no solace in them. His life is an example of how worldly distractions interfere with living a true Christian life. His quote, “I have learned to love you late, beauty at once so ancient and so new!” is testament to his powerful and complete conversion to Christianity.

Pope Boniface VII designated St. Augustine as Doctor of the Church in 1298. The Western Church celebrates the feast of St. Augustine on August 28. Eastern Christianity designates June 15 as his feast day and the Assyrian Church celebrates November 4 as his feast day. He is the patron saint of brewers, printers and theologians. His search for truth and subsequent devotion to Christ also makes St. Augustine a saintly hero for members of the RCIA or recent converts to Catholicism.

did not St. Augustine finally come around to the Justifcation by fasith and faith alone. I think He did..

Yes, he did in the end.  In all denominations that venerate saints, he has been venerated as a saint.  Mostly for the theology he expressed and being a convert from a depraved womanizer as one scholar put it.   I think his writing can give anyone what they seek if they wade through it when it comes to faith.

I like some of what he says other stuff I have to remind myself when he wrote it.

Yes, I understand, As I have several of his writings one has to be careful to discern the time he wrote them.

We must always remember that the battle we are in now is not a physical battle, but instead a spiritual one. The weapons that are being fought with are not physical weapons; they are spiritual weapons.
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds (2 Cor. 10:4).
We are called into the service of spiritual warfare by God. We belong to Him, and therefore we are in the army of the Lord. Our enemy is the devil. He has great power and will do everything in his power to see us defeated.
The entirety of this world is a spiritual battlefield. Even so, we may never actually see the war being waged. If the truth is told, the war itself is already over. Christ won the ultimate victory at Calvary. Yet there are battles still being fought. What are the spoils of these battles? They are, to God, of the greatest value. The souls of those who stand in the valley of decision are won and lost everyday.
As believers, we are also called to be soul-winners. Every spiritual battle fought is fought so unbelievers can come to Christ. That is the goal of any soldier in the Lord's army.
Every soldier goes to battle with equipment that is trusted, effective and reliable. No soldier would ever go to battle without their equipment. What is the spiritual equipment that the Lord provides to the believer in His service? We put on Jesus Christ. Notice that each piece of the armor of God is a synonym for Jesus.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (Eph. 6:13-17).
Are you ready for battle today?
Thank you Father for always giving us what we need in every battle we may face!!

Borrow this from a young Chaplain from a Biker Chaplaincy group I am a member of, excellent piece of writing.

"Cast all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7) Our Lord is faithful and He has never promised or said that we would not have anxiety, worry, or fear and yet His word does tell us that when we are anxious we can let our burdens down at His feet, surrendering them to His care and He will give us rest, peace, renewal, and strength. So whatever you face today my brothers and sisters do as the Psalmist says in Psalm 56:3, "When I am afraid, I put my trust in You." and let God revive your faith.

Thank you C. Boggs for letting me repost here.

borrowed from another forum I am on.  I hope to be as faithful, devote, and knowledge as this person before my time here is over.

"And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." (Matthew 24:12-13)
On this day we can see that for many their hearts have grown cold and turned away from acts of kindness and love towards their neighbor. The bible teaches that if we endure until the end we shall be saved and yet you might be saying to yourself, "But I am saved already." It is true that we are saved and yet truth also be told in order to reach the eternal goal and earn the crown that will not fade we must continue to do good and to live well in the love of Christ. My hope is that everyone will know and learn to live and to love in the love of our Lord but until that comes or even if it doesn't may we continue to live and be radical lovers of one another and those who are of the world. May we be careful as well to be friends to the world instead of lovers of the world. Let us love radically today and endure to the end. Keep running the race of faith my brothers and sisters. Be blessed to be a blessing today as always. Amen.
