Faith Is Not Knowledge

547.05Question: Those people who feel that their fate is in their hands believe in their own strength more. Can a God-fearing person better control his nature, his thirst for power, if he believes in the upper force of governance? If he believes but does not feel it, can it help?

Answer: No, because faith is not knowledge. We see that as we develop, it gradually disappears from human society, there is no room in it for faith.

Question: Do you think that a person will not be able to overcome his egoistic nature, his thirst for power, without clearly feeling the upper force but only believing in it?

Answer: Gradually, he will come to the point that he needs contact with it, without which it is difficult for him to understand how to live.
