I have talked with people who claim to not have any faith. They live, or so they say, by what they can control and measure. But it is not true or we would never drive down a two lane road. The law doesn't keep people on the other side of the line but you have faith they will stay there. Now it is not always well placed faith and that is the real issue, what we place faith in, or rather, in whom we place faith. Drivers, doctors, the people who set the ropes or someone who can be trusted in every situation.
"These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world." 1 Peter 1:7 NLT
