Faith

Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”

knowledge + evidence = truth
God’s words + no evidence = truth = faith

 

Saving Faith = Notitia + Assensus + Fiducia
Notitia = Knowing 
Assensus = Believing 
Fiducia = Trusting and Obeying 

 

Catholicism: Justification = faith + works
Antinomianism: Justification = faith – works
Reformed: Faith = justification + works

 

Repentance is running from sin, and faith is running to God. Same direction, same action. They are the two sides of the same coin.

Repentance = Running from sin = Running to God = Faith

 

Fear-based repentance is running to God without Christ.
Joy-based repentance is running to God in Christ.


Attrition = fear of punishment
Contrition = a broken and contrite heart = true faith
