Lesson 2 – What is natural faith?
For the purposes of this short course, let's dive into the religious faith. In my humble opinion, this is the faith that, when used with love, honesty, sincerity, intelligence and freedom is the only force that can make the human being really be a better person. Within the religious faith we will know more about the two basic types of faith: The natural faith and supernatural faith. Let's start with the natural faith
Natural faith is man's original faith. The human being comes standard with the natural faith. This faith is one that is based on what we see, in our wisdom, our intelligence, our emotions and our knowledge of the world. This faith is the man who does believe in your own strength and power. It is the natural faith which makes the human being believe in the forces of nature, on another human being in amulets, money, symbols, institutions, associations, ideas, power, philosophy and human knowledge. It is a visible faith. It is logical. It is palpable. This natural faith brings to our lives only common things. As it is a faith based on human nature, it also varies with the seasons and varies as much as the human heart. She is extremely fickle.
How does the natural faith?
So we can better understand how the natural faith we will use the biblical passage that is in Luke 5: 1-9.
1 – Once when the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, I stood by the lake of Gennesaret; 2 – And saw two ships standing by the lake; but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. 3 – He Entering one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land; And I sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. 4 – When he finished speaking, he said to Simon, Put out into the deep and cast your nets for a catch. 5 – When Simon answered, Master, we toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at thy word I will let down the nets. 6 – Having done this, they caught a lot of fish, so that the net was breaking. 7 – they beckoned to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. 8 – Seeing Simon Peter, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man. 9 – For the view of the fishes which they had done, they were astonished him and all who were with him – Luke 5: 1-9.
Natural faith works like this:
First situation – I want to fish. Where there are fish? In the lake. How can I catch these fish? Playing network. I play the network the first time, and what luck! Right the first time the network is full of many fish. Fishing was a success.
Second situation – I play the first network and not caught any fish. I throw the net again and also not caught anything. Just think, today I'm out of luck. I insist: the network game again … Once … again … And so I spend the whole night throwing the network with nothing to catch. When the day is about to dawn I make the final conclusion: today was not a good night's fishing. I did not give luck. OK! I will wash my nets, and soon the evening I go back to see if I have better luck.
Please note that the natural faith always works with a kind of natural confidence. I want to catch fish. To catch fish I have to cast the net on the lake. If all goes well, I have a great chance to catch fish because there in the lake is the place they are. They, the fish do not stay in the mountains. So I know that if I play the network there on the lake and lucky, I'll catch fish. When I can catch fish fishing is a success. I'm happy for that. When I can not catch fish fishing was a bust. I feel sad, frustrated and very discouraged with it. Before the failure of fishing, I give up and go wash their networks. Natural faith is so, it only works on top of that we can see, feel, think, and learn more. It worked, we were happy. Went wrong, we were sad.
2 – Let's see another example: For this our second example let's take the biblical passage that is in Mark 5:24 and 25.
24 – And Jesus went with him. A large crowd went along and squeezed from all sides. 25 – there came a woman who was twelve years who had a hemorrhage. 26 – had spent all he had, in the case with many doctors. These they suffered a lot; but, instead of improving, it was increasingly worsened. 27 – She had heard about Jesus; then went through the crowd and came up behind him, touched his cloak, 28 – because he thought like this: "If I just touch his garment, I shall be whole. "29 – Once blood flow has stopped, and she was sure that she was healed. 30 – At once Jesus felt that his power had gone out. Then he turned around in the crowd and asked: – Who touched my cloak 31 – The disciples answered: – Do you see how these people the are pressing on all sides and still question it 32 – But Jesus He was looking around to see who had done it. 33 – Then the woman, knowing what had happened, threw herself at his feet, shaking with fear, and told her everything. 34 – And Jesus said: – My daughter, you faith has healed. Go in peace; you are free from your suffering. Mark 5: 00:25
Natural faith works like this:
Scenario 1 – I'm sick. I want to be healed. I'm going to the doctor. I do everything the doctor tells me to do. I take the medicine and get cured soon. How wonderful! Thank you doctor. The Lord is great! My health returned to normal. Because of my immediate cure, I am very happy and intensely radiant.
Situation 2 – I'm sick. I want to be healed. I'm going to the doctor. I do everything the doctor tells me to do. Even I doing everything according to what doctor sent me to my pain and suffering only increases. Given the situation will getting worse every day. I continue to look for other doctors. I paid for his services. The time passes and nothing to improve. I'm getting quite desperate because my money is almost gone and I find the cure for my illness. Natural faith is like this: When it works I'm happy. It goes wrong when I am sad, frustrated and, depending on the case, completely without prospects or hope for a better future. This is how it works natural faith.
