Chapter 2: Lessons on Faith

Without faith it is impossible to please God. The reason for this is that “whatsoever is not of faith is sin” (Rom. 14:23); and of course sin can not please God.

This is why it is that, as stated by the Spirit of prophecy on the first page of the Review, Oct. 18, 1898, “The knowledge of what the Scripture means when urging upon us the necessity of cultivating faith, is more essential than any other knowledge that can be acquired.”

And for this cause we shall hereafter, in this place in each number of the Review, give a Scripture lesson on faith,—what is it, how it comes, how to receive it,—that every reader of this paper may have this knowledge that “is more essential than any other knowledge that can be acquired.”

Review and Herald, November 29, 1898
