Rayww,

> I think I see what you mean. If I have faith in myself, I will say "I can do this" and "I can love this" "I can love me". Then, the most amazing gift will be to suddenly wake up and realize that our faith in God has grown too, because God promises that "inasmuch as ye have done to the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me".

<<< Faith is not a verb... Faith in a godhead is a graceful state of surity in his countenance.

> Is faith faith then? Will having faith in one's self eventually lead to faith in God?

<<< You left out, "...a stronger more durable..." faith in God.

> Faith is simple. Ask a child. Some of us grow too far away from our childlike nature.

<<< A child will not create God. Without parents children won't have God. Once a child who lives in isolation becomes an adult, God emerges in their conscious awareness.

> Have you ever been around a person who worships himself?

<<< ...a narcissusistic polyschizoid ?

> How about a person who thinks of others? Whom would you say is the happiest and most fulfilled?

<<< Trick questions deserve trick answers. Instead I'll be practical. I can't judge another person's happiness and fulfillment no matter how they may protest or project any image to us.

> Those who look to God and think of others find that God looks after them. Therefore a part of faith is just that, and as god looks after us, our faith grows because we cannot help but acknowledge his hand in all things. I testify that his hand is recognizable.

<<< Certain folks have slated an arrogant view that man is incapable of this or that miracle, thus God committed the miracle; any miracle; every miracle. I'm not pointing fingers, Rayww. I'm only making an obsevation. I've personally witnessed mircales. As I studied them, they became less miracle and more luck.
