2) 同意 = 同意福音的真实性
3) 信靠 = 信靠和顺服
Notitia = Knowing
Assensus = Assenting
Fiducia = Trusting and Obeying
Legalism: Works = Justification

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
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
