Product Description

Product Description

What is faith, and how do we receive it and grow in it?

We live in a society that is virtually devoid of faith. Since most people don't read the Bible, they don't know much about God or believe He even exists. What about you - do you lack the faith to believe in God?

Having true faith will help you make sense out the troubling and confusing world you live in. It will give you the confidence you need to move forward with your life despite trials and setbacks.

How do you get faith?

Growing in faith requires believing in God and maintaining a close relationship with Him. You can have this relationship with God through daily prayer, Bible study and applying what God says in the Scriptures in your personal life.

Learn more about how to grow in Christian faith by reading this Bible study aid ebook, You Can Have Living Faith, and start building that close relationship with God today!

Chapters in this ebook:

-- Introduction: You Can Have Living Faith
-- What Is Faith?
-- The Meaning of Faith
-- The Book of James: An 'Epistle of Straw'?
-- Examples of Living Faith
-- When It Seems God Doesn't Hear or Answer
-- Enemies of Faith
-- Growing in Faith

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:

"Lack of faith—an active, living trust in and relationship with God—is a widespread problem affecting every nation and virtually every individual."

"If we want to better our lives, our model for living faith should be Jesus Christ."

"Many people don't have the faith described in the Bible because they do not believe or practice what Jesus said: "If you love Me, keep My commandments" (John 14:15)."

"The Bible tells us salvation is by God's grace and is not earned by good works "lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9). But we are saved by grace through faith. The danger we face is that our faith will die if we neglect our salvation by not living a life of obedience to God (Hebrews 2:1-3)."

"The examples and testimonies of the men and women we read about in Hebrews 11 show us we can believe God."

"We should pray to God for faith, and we should pray often for it (Luke 18:1)."

"Living a life of prayer, Bible study and humble obedience to God clarifies and strengthens our faith."

HASH(0x9ac686a8) out of 5 stars Armstrongite cult Dec 8 2015
By Robert Sparkman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This publication was produced by a group associated with the teachings of Herbert Armstrong. Groups associated with Armstrongism include Restored Church of God, United Church of God, Philadelphia Church of God, and Living Church of God.

I was a member of an Armstrongite group for over ten years as a young Christian, so I am intimately familiar with their teachings. I am now attending an EFCA (Evangelical Free Churches of America) congregation.

Armstrongites should be considered a cult, and should be avoided. The two major reasons why they should be considered a cult are their “God family” doctrine and their “true church” or exclusivist position.

Their “God family” doctrine teaches that the redeemed become fully God in the resurrection, and will join the Godhead. In other words, there will be no difference between the redeemed, God the Father and Jesus Christ in terms of nature. They deny the personhood of the Holy Spirit.

Salvation, to them, is about proving themselves trustworthy to be given the full powers of Godhood. They are qualifying to rule as a God, ultimately over their own planet. They are Gods in embryonic form, to be "born again" at the resurrection. This view is very similar to Mormonism.

They deny the Christian doctrine of the Trinity, declaring it to be pagan. The reality is that their view is polytheistic, and thus pagan, as they assert that there are two separate god beings, God the Father and Jesus Christ. It is also a blasphemous view, as God is unique, uncreated, and alone worthy of worship. Claiming that the redeemed will join the Godhead is blasphemous. The redeemed reflect the character of God like a mirror reflects light, but they will never be the Light; only a mirror.

It is true that the redeemed are adopted children of God, but they turn this adoption into something that it is not.

Christianity teaches that God is one in terms of essence or being, and three in terms of Person. Armstrongism teaches that God is one in terms of family, and two in terms of Person. I suggest reading the book “Forgotten Trinity” by James White to understand the biblical nature of the Trinity doctrine, and to understand the problem with the “God Family” doctrine.

Armstrongites also claim their beliefs are true Christianity, and that the rest of Christianity is a “counterfeit Christianity” teaching a “false gospel” and that those outside of their organizations are unsaved and spiritually blind. They claim that other Christian leaders are “ministers of Satan”.

Their views, like the views of other cults, come from a conspiracy theory view of church history, mainly with the Roman Empire and the Roman Catholic church as the villains in their story.

Like most other cults, their leader Herbert Armstrong, claimed that God raised him up to restore true Christianity. He was a very contentious man. Following in his footsteps, modern-day Armstrongite teachers have a similarly contemptuous attitude toward other Christians and proclaim themselves to be the authorities on Scripture. In-house, they refer to their belief system as “the Truth” just like many cults do.
While their teachings sound biblical at a surface level, if you compare them with evangelical Christian doctrine, their distortion of Scripture is apparent. Their belief system largely rests upon taking Scriptures out of context, implying false contexts, unsound hermeneutics, and a faulty understanding of church history. While accusing others of taking things out of context and being wolves, they are the ones who are doing these very things. I have little doubt that most of them are deceived and don’t know that they themselves are practicing the things that they accuse others of doing, but false doctrine is false doctrine, regardless if they are deceived or not.

I would highly suggest avoiding them, and considering a sound, evangelical church such as EFCA (Evangelical Churches of America), CMA (Christian and Missionary Alliance) or a church associated with 9marks ministry. Each of these organizations has church finders online.

HASH(0x9ac30894) out of 5 stars Stepping out on faith Aug. 30 2014
By Helen Kincaid - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
easy read and just plain on fashion teaching.
we make exercising Faith so difficult and it is as simple has having Child like Faith.

we need to look at a child and see how easy the receive.

Example: a child is learning to swim and standing in front of her /his parent (mother or father), they are encouraging the child to take the first step. The child is concerned about jumping in, but the soft soothing voice reassures the child.." I will catch you ". Child shakes or even cries, No, you will drop me.
more encouragement and somewhere this child takes in a deep breath.... And jumps.
Her /his parents have their arms out, and the child is caught.
End results.... Learning to step o u t on Faith.

Faith is one of those concepts that is so difficult to understand and at times even more difficult to demonstrate. You Can Have Living Faith allows the reader an opportunity to understand where faith comes from and how it can really change our lives.

HASH(0x9c5b3048) out of 5 stars A wonderful reminder to live by faith Jan. 10 2013
By Emelia Mosima - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Many times we hear of faith only in terms of possessing material promises from God, but the author of this booklet attempts to proof that faith is more than a gateway to God's blessings.

In addition to a thorough definition of faith, the author also list things that hinder faith and how we can grow our faith.

I recommend this book if you want a broader understanding of faith or you want to know how to grow your faith.
