Hebrews 12 offers five corrosives to faith, each of which seems rather mundane. But for most of us, the greatest danger to our faith is not a cataclysmic event, but the gradual dulling of our heart toward God.
In Genesis 3 we are confronted with a “close encounter of the third kind”—not an encounter with the living God but rather with Satan, the “god of this world”—the god who rules the new age with the old lies. There are five lies Satan loves to tell in Genesis 3:1–5
Jesus’ teaching in the synagogue was basically expository, as He would take Scriptures and explain them section by section, precept by precept, and verse by verse with the purpose of teaching the truth. Hosea 4:6 speaks of our need for knowledge of the Word.
A lot of us grew up in churches where what we were taught was more of a works-based kind of follow-the-rules, Old Testament-law-following Christianity, rather than the gospel. It was not taught that our standing with God doesn’t change based on how good we are or how bad we are on any given day.

Satan arrived at the cross looking like the one in control, the unbeatable enemy of God’s people. But when those three days ended and the smoke cleared, Christ left the scene as the empowered, conquering hero, and Savior of the world.
Love also provides faith. In saying that love believes all things, Paul doesn’t intend us to hallow naïveté or praise gullibility. Verse eleven of this chapter makes that clear. Rather, Paul is saying that no matter what, faith takes its stand.
I can choose to forgive, or I can choose to hold a grudge. By nature, I want to hold a grudge. I want to be able to point the finger; but if I forgive you, I can no longer point the finger. This is why unity doesn’t take place. Somebody won’t forgive and forget.
