“Our confession is an offspring of faith,” said Pastor Chris.
In an interactive Q&A segment of the November 2016 Global Communion Service, Pastor Chris addressed quite a few questions related to faith and spirituality asked by the followers around the world.
One of the viewers asked Pastor Chris, “Why his confessions (of faith) did not seem to produce results within the desired timeframe”. Pastor Chris said in response to the question asked, “Faith is not that you are confessing it; we make the confession, because we have faith,”.
Pastor Chris further discussed the subject of faith at length with an aim to make the person, who brought the subject of faith into light and other viewers, understand how to use their faith.
“Faith is spiritual knowledge…substance…not assumption,” Pastor said, as he focused that it is not possible to have faith and return with a negative report, since faith suggests one already had what they desired.
