Here is something I read on Facebook.
Belief and faith
True Belief in God
Belief and Faith
Though the two seem much the same; really they are not.
Some instances they are as different as coldness is to hot.
The bible speaks of both to show what is to be expected
but to always try to remember why, one is not neglected.
Something that you think you know until it’s put to test
must have a share of faith involved, not like all the rest.

When Jesus was being crucified some of the spectators challenged him to prove he was the Son of God by coming down from the cross.
And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.”
So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying, “He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him.”
If he had chosen to do so he could have come down from the cross. He had earlier stated that if he asked, God would send twelve legions of angels to help him.
And behold, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his ear. Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its place. For all who take the sword will perish by the sword. Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then should the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?”
