How do we increase our faith?

How do we increase our faith?

Scripture doesn’t try to hide the fact that King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. But, what exactly did God think of that? Well, in today’s episode, Cameron and Dr. J tackle this fun question out of the Old Testament before diving into the topic of faith. It’s a word we use frequently, but what does it mean? How do we know if we have it? How do we get more of it?

03:46 — We read in Matthew 7:1, “Do not judge others and you will not be judged.” What kinds of judgments are being talked about here? What exactly does “judge” mean?

06:20 — And, even if I were never to make judgements, would this mean the Father wouldn’t judge me? I thought there will come a “judgment day” no matter what?

09:36 — Why were men allowed several wives and concubines? Isn’t this adultery? What’s the deal here?

16:04 — How do you most often hear from God?

20:57 — We hear that we need to pray with faith, but what does it really mean to have faith?

21:55 — What does it mean to have a bold faith?

24:41 — How do we increase our faith?

29:27 — Faith is listed as a spiritual gift in 1 Corinthians 12. What exactly is the spiritual gift of faith and does it differ from regular ol’ faith we read about in Scripture?

32:08 — What did Jesus mean when He said, “Your faith has made you well?” If we pray for healing and do not receive it, is that because we lack faith?

34:04 — So, how do we change the way we pray and learn to pray with more faith?
