Why Faith Alone Prevails

June 11, 2012 § Leave a comment

‘He was mighty in hunting before Jehovah’ means that he persuaded many people. This is clear from the fact that faith separated from charity is such, and also from the meaning of ‘hunting’ in the Word. Faith separated from charity is such that people are easily persuaded. The vast majority of mankind do not know what internal things are, but they do know what external are. The vast majority are also given to sensualism, low pleasures and desires, considering only themselves and the world, and are therefore easily captivated by that kind of religion. (AC 1178)
