Gene Scott on the Necessity of Faith

Been listening to Dr. Gene Scott lately, on the warfare of the Christian. "Finally, brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the craftiness of the Devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, authorities, world-rulers of this present darkness, and spiritual forces of wickedness in the air around us." (Eph. 6:10-12) This is serious. This wrestling, Dr. Scott kept saying, is a one-on-one fight until one or the other combatant has his foot on the neck of the other. And we wrestle by faith, which takes a promise of God and believes it and acts on it.

I would disagree with the Dr., and say that Faith does not include action, but is the settled inner confidence that something is true. It then, if it is true, will produce action. Also, it is something given by God.

So walk by the faith you have. Know that this is a life or death struggle, but the outcome is predestined (God wins).
