Some believe that we are saved by our faith alone. But “faith” does not just mean “belief” in God or that Jesus is the Son of God. If that were true, according to the Bible, then the devil himself would be automatically saved. He “believed” both things to be true. True faith, however, is a loving “trust” in God and His Son Jesus Christ. But even if we are saved by our faith alone, it is important to remember that faith without works is dead (James 2:14-26).
Cynicism is when a small mind and a hurt heart rejects the hope, love, and truth of a big and caring God.
