True Spiritual Faith

There is no faith that does not come from the word of God. Put positively: all faith must come from the word of God to be true faith. The holy Scriptures are the word kept by the Church, and the Church is the context of the word.

There is little nowadays distinguishing between what often passes for faith and putting God to the test by jumping off a cliff and thinking, On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone (Mt 4.5–7). That is, much of the time what we call faith may be merely sinfully putting God to the test, and our Lord himself suffered this temptation but rejected it.
