Faith is Motivation - my take on Hebrew 11: 1

Faith is the substance of our Hope and evidence for things not seen.
Iman adalah dasar dari segala sesuatu yang kita harapkan dan bukti dari segala sesuatu yang tidak kita lihat.

This talks about what makes you move, what makes you work. Just knowing facts won't make you move, just hoping for a better life won't make you move. Believing in the works and Favoring the cause makes you move and even that in my opinion are fractal in nature of it's definition.

Ayat ini berbicara tentang apa yang membuat anda bergerak/bekerja. "Dasar" diartikan sebanding dengan "Material". Sesuatu yang bisa berpengaruh atau faktor yang relevan untuk perubahan selanjutnya.
Kita tidak bisa melihat masa depan, apakah yang akan kita capai dan rasakan. Tapi kita bergerak dan bekerja, tanpa melihat hal tersebut. Orang kristen bukan orang yang tidak tau sains, John Lennox mengatakan kalau mereka tidak tahu apa yang normal mereka tidak akan memakai kata "keajaiban". Begitu juga dengan bukti, orang kristen tahu apa itu bukti. Dan kita mengambil keputusan berdasarkan bukti. Orang kristen memandang ke Tuhan, dan dalam ketergantungan kepada Tuhan, orang kristen tahu bahwa berjalannya waktu adalah semakin terang dan semakin terang dan semakin terang dan semakin jelas selamanya. Tuhan akan menjadikan segala sesuatu baik buat mereka yang mengasihi-Nya.
Dan karena Tuhan akan menjadikan gagal segala pekerjaan dan tujuan-tujuan yang jahat. Kalau bagi dunia kejahatan sudah berhasil, selanjutnya dalam Tuhan semua arti itu tidak benar.

    1. 1 Timothy 2:15
      Women saved through childbearing...
      This is an act of faith, set as an example for women by Eve.
      People are considered righteous through their faith... Paul said this.
      Faith in modern sense is motivation... So women who performed childbearing are acting it out of faith, especially Eve (KJV "she") God said that Eve's seed will defeat the snake. So Eve's survival through her childbearing and her act of keeping on childbearing until Set, in my opinion, is an act of faith.

      So it's about faith, and faith is superior to childbearing. I don't think women who loved their neighbours, but had not performed childbearing, are unfaithful people.
      They are role models of faith! (like mother Theresa for example).

  2. Have you ever tried to make a youtube video comment, a long one, but you're restricted to the word limit?
    You got to make use of that space right?
    Now imagine Paul and Luke, expensive paper (or leather), expensive ink, no backspace, no delete...
    And people expected the honorable Apostle Paul to be convenient? People people...
    Personally I think He delivered... excellently.

  3. Faith is proof for the things unseen...
    So I'd say that faith is the inclination to react or to act upon an information or an input... (which the input came from simulation not from real experience).

  4. Proverb 3:19
    The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

    - FAITH !!!

    1 Corinthians 13:13
    And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these [is] charity.

    - FAITH is very fundamental to existence
    (low entropy state of the universe should be a living being (a living created being), And the entity must have the ability to imagine or to simulate). -A created "being"-

  5. Just because the Word was from God, doesn't that the Word was not God himself.
    My brain came from my polymorphic blob of cells. Doesn't mean that my brain is not me.
