S, Garret, Hrushyknob Mo, T take much pleasure in read ing the Chesset and learn many truths In your paper. Now Bro. Garrett I wish to ask what believe is? And how does it come? And please give the difference in believe and faith, is there, two beliefs as there is kinds of faith? It seems there is saving power in both of them. We see that you will be lieve a lie and be damned. And it seems that one creates the other, Now Bro, Garrett as I see that the most of the people do not understand believe and faith, I ask you to give your an swer in the Cresset. Yours in Christ. II.

For there must be substance and an evidence, be- fore man can believe. And we learn in the second quotation, it ays devils believed and trembled.

Now we bflicvo that there is but few who know what the Lord's might is, much les the ''power of his might. Bat this is not the question now. Why we quoted this scripture is for the purpose of finding out the position that faith and belief holds in the armor of God. A- bove all take the shield of faith, 10 v. with the shield of faith you ate able to quench all the tircy darts of the wicked one. The shield of faith is not belief then. Became belief of most any de gree can be over come, but the shield of faith can nnt be over come. For this reason we must say that God himself is the shield of faith (thai is the hield oi Christ) For it is written.

This proves God to be the head of Christ. Now then is Christ represented in the word faith, We rep- at that if faith i" the substance of things hoped for Then the word faith, here, re presents Christ for Christ is the substance of things hoped for And if faith is the c idtncpj of things not so n --Then the word faith .again represent Christ For He is the evidence of things not soeu. Again if the circumcision must be justified by faith -Then again it is Christ And if the uncir cu incision is justified through faith Then faith must represent Christ For it is Christ that will justify both Jew and Gentile. Again th word says "contend earnestly for the faith once de livered to the saints"' and in this sentence we see Christ lor it was him that was delivered unto the saints oy the deternun d council 0f God So our belief is quite different from this kind, of faith Lnnlron nf .n,.,...v... But to be honest it'i our j, readers we must say that the word faith, many times f poken hn the bihleis unnlied as anatiri n the bihleis applied as an atari ute of tiie mind of ninn, And in but a very few instances ill I wi'l perfect I v cover th- word be lief. And where we will distin guish the greatest difference in the two words are in the fit-Id thev cover. The word foith will, cover a larger hVld than the word belief. Especially in tho manner they are both used in tho pre sent time- for instance We say; "faithfulness," "iaithleane8," we never use the word, ' belie f-fulne-s," "belieilessness". It is true it could be used in this manner. But, in such teitence faith if preferable. So trusting that our worthy Bro ma.v from our answer re" ceive the desired information we beg to remain as your Bro. in Christ. SOFT SNAP .
