Does your faith lie in your own ability to discern the mind of God?
Does your faith lie in your tradition being closer to the truth than another?
Does your faith lie in the virgin birth?
Does your faith lie in a balanced diet and exercising?
Does your faith lie in in maintenance of the status quo?
Does your faith lie in your beloved eventually coming to their senses and taking you back?
Does your faith lie in a hell beyond this life for those who didn’t accept Jesus Christ?
Does your faith lie in your job?
Does your faith lie in financial savings?
Does your faith lie in liberalism?
Does your faith lie in your own good intentions?
Where does your faith…
Where does your faith…
Lie?
