The Divine Art of Living

"Evolution is better than Revolution. New Thought Library's New Thought Archives encompass a full range of New Thought from Abrahamic to Vedic. New Thought literature reflects the ongoing evolution of human thought. New Thought's unique inclusion of science, art and philosophy presents a dramatic contrast with the magical thinking of decadent religions that promulgate supersticions standing in the way of progress to shared peace and prosperity." ~ Avalon de Rossett

Chapter 3 - Faith - p. 23


AFTER the lapse of many centuries, the best definition of faith is found in the Scriptures.

"Faith," says Paul, ''is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen.

It has been further defined as an assent to a truth, the evidence of which is not complete. Thus Lowell has said that, "science was faith once." The faith of Columbus led him to the discovery of a new world. Almost every great invention may be traced to the faith of the inventor.

The farmer sows his seed and has faith that the ripened grain will follow, though he is wholly unable to prove the source of the process. The child lacking faith digs up his seed to we if it has taken root.
