“Statement of Faith” vs. “walk of faith”

Here is something I read on Facebook.

“Statement of Faith” vs. “walk of faith”

by Joshua Agan

I grew up hearing, “You can walk the walk and you can talk the talk, but your walk talks louder than your talk talks.”

I have become less interested in a person’s (or church’s) “Statement of Faith,” and more interested in seeing their “walk of faith.”

Anyone can write out factually accurate statements about doctrine, and even mentally agree that those statements are historically and factually true.

But if a man’s walk does not match what they state they believe, then there is nothing of spiritual value that this person has for me, or for you. Whether they are pastors, your favorite Bible teacher, a study buddy, or your best friend—do they walk out the faith that they profess?

James says that the double-minded man is the one who wavers in his faith. He has the right doctrines that lead him to ask in faith, but he does not walk the walk when his feet hit the ground.

“For let not that man think that he shall receive ANY THING of the Lord,” James warns. (Though we claim the gift of Life is a silent exception to that.)

“Unto the pure all things are pure:
but unto them that are defiled
and unbelieving is nothing pure;
but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
They PROFESS that they know God;
but IN WORKS they deny him,
being abominable, and DISOBEDIENT,
and unto every good work reprobate.”
(Titus 1:15-16)
