roncriss <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:Interesting comments all! This reminds me of the modern emphasis on
praxis (practice), as opposed to mere theory in liberation and other
social theologies. As Jesus Himself said:
"He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth
me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will
love him, and will manifest myself to him" (John 14:21).
Notice He does not say we are saved by faith alone! "Faith without
works is dead".

also it is not enough that something is in ur mind, rather it should
be live up to. and this is the same when it comes to faith. this is
what he's concept of reduplication is about. living what u believe in.

- But isn't there, even when witnesses are involved, a certain amount
of trust implied in faith? Isn't there an intuitive element to faith
distinct from knowledge per se?
(Btw, I changed the heading to reflect the subject)

The child believes his father as a result, and because he believes
his father, the child believes he has acquired knowledge about his
father's work world -- "real" knowledge, "truth."
