ABCs OF FAITH! What Faith Is: Faith Is Not Mental Assent

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.Hebrews 11:1

We are studying the ABCs of faith. One reason for this book is that there is very little "real Bible faith" being practiced in the Church today. Most Christians are following the popular fads of the day and not the Word of God. Most churches are catering to the carnal, entertainment desires of carnal Christians, and people are losing their grip on the Word. We need an awakening of "real Bible faith" today!

This ministry has accepted the challenge to help Jesus find faith on the earth when He returns. Jesus spoke to my heart in no uncertain terms just before this economic crisis hit in 2008 to "GO TEACH a balanced Biblical way!" In order to see this happen we must get back to basics—or the ABCs of Faith. Too many ministers today teach faith with wrong motives. We need the pure, unadulterated, Word of God—which produces faith—taught today.

Mental Assent Agrees With The Bible

We have been discussing the first thing you should know about faith, which is: "What Faith Is." As we have said, one of the best ways to analyze what something is, is by contrastingwhatit is with what it is not. So far we have studied that faith is not hope because hope is always future and faith is always now.

Now let's continue to study "Faith is not mental assent." Mental assent is to mentally agree that the Bible is the Word, but refuse to act. Mental assent is what defeats the child of God who regularly attends church more than anything else. Most Christians are not missing it in what they believe but in refusing to act upon God's Word. Faith is an act! Mental assent just says, "I am blessed and highly favored" while refusing to act on the blessing that has already been provided in the Word.

MENTAL ASSENT AGREES WITH THE BIBLE but refuses to act on it.

Understanding Mental Assent

  • 􏰀 Mental assent agrees 100% that the Bible is true.

  • 􏰀 Mental assent agrees that Jesus is the Son of God.

  • 􏰀 Mental assent agrees that Jesus was raised from the dead.

  • 􏰀 Mental assent will say I believe the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.

  • 􏰀 Mental assent is beautiful. BUT IT WILL NOT ACT ON THE WORD.

Bible faith leaves no room for mental assent.

Ephesians 1:15-23

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. In Jesus Name, Amen.
