Show Notes

The Greek word pistis is often translated “faith,” but what does it mean? The concept of “faith” in the Bible is commonly misunderstood. Learn the history of “the Word of Faith Movement” and how trying to make things happen by “just having faith” puts an immense amount of pressure on Christians. This teaching helps us understand that while our trust in God and Christ does not force things to happen, there are wonderful effects of trusting God and living wisely. 

Verses: Matt. 23:23; Acts 17:31; Heb. 11:1, 6; 13:5; 2 Cor. 5:1-7; Prov. 23:4; 28:20; Luke 12:15; 1 Tim. 6:8 

Teacher: John Schoenheit
