Just in case there are any believers here.

Jesus’ test for faith. Have you tested your faith?

Matthew 17:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Many believers that I speak with state that they have faith in God yet no one has yet stepped up as Jesus indicates above to prove their faith sound and justified.

As a Deist, I would not accept my own paradigm before testing it for soundness and I was rewarded for challenging the Godhead to show itself. It was that or I was going to scrap my view of life and begin anew.

Most believers do not tend to test their faith in their relationship with God in any real way. Many claim a personal relationship without ever having a personal encounter with God.

The ancients are said to have tested their faith and been rewarded, by God helping them do miracles. Moses is a good example of this.

If a man does not test his faith and prove it, then it is just an empty claim.

Have you tested your faith or indeed, should you test it the way Jesus asked?

In any scientific endeavor or claim, it must always be proven.

Should those of faith not have to live by this same rule since most who debate them must?

Where I come from, reciprocity is fair play yet believers do not seem to play this way.

DL

If I did have any faith in Jesus/Yahweh, I'd get into moving a particular mountain to a new location pronto.

Too bad I'm lacking. Nothing to test ...

The whole world will know it if I can get him to move his ass.
