Chapter 0: The Misunder­standing of Faith

Home Books

To the thousands of churches in across America, this book is for you. This book will challenge and rock what most believe Faith in Jesus Christ really means. It’s a good chance some will get “upset” at what is written. However this book wasn’t written to please man, but to show them the truth.

My name is Neal Chester and I’m the author of this book. I wrote this book because the Lord told me to. What was written is not my unique perspective or opinion on faith, but the Word of God’s. Test what is written alongside the Bible. If you believe what is written is fallacy, it is your job to rebuke me, in love, according to the holy scriptures.

First of all, I want to thank you for taking the time to read this book. This book provides a solution to one of the biggest, overlooked, core problems with Christianity: a misunderstanding of Faith in Jesus Christ. Of course, the majority of professing Christians today believe they understand Faith, but the state of the Church is the proof that they don’t really understand the F-word.

When I learned the truth about Faith in Jesus Christ, I found it cumbersome to explain to Christians because it was contrary to what they’d been taught. So this book gives a detailed, biblical explanation into what it means to have Faith in Jesus Christ. This book is obviously directed to Bible believing Christians who know that Jesus is Lord, the only Savior of mankind and the only way to our Father in Heaven.

This book is also a response to those who don’t understand why I stop attending church; and keep trying to invite me back (I know some of you mean well). The main reason is, again, there is a misunderstanding of Faith which has corrupted the Body. The majority of the Church is in a “fallen away” state, the devil is at work deceiving many; souls are being spiritually wounded and aborted; the Bible is no longer the standard for righteousness; and the leaders and teachers are too delusional (2 Thess 2:9-12) to recognize the danger we’re all in. Christianity has become something else; and this “something else” is on the wide road to Hell. No one is safe except for those who understand what true Faith is and practice it.

Please understand that this is not a church bashing “why-the-church-is-messed-up” kind of book. It’s a solution book. This book highlights God’s definition of Faith in Jesus Christ; and how we can have this kind of Faith instead of the imitation we pride ourselves with today.

I ask that you read the entire book before making a comment. For all those, after reading this book, still don’t understand what true Faith in God really means, feel free to contact me. I expect many to reject this message, I expect some to say they agree (but really don’t) and I expect a few to wake up and actually get it. All questions are welcome, but if you just wanna debate and wrestle with me, it’s not going to happen. I only wrestle with demons (Ephesians 6:12).

Christians need to know and understand what Faith in Jesus truly means; without Faith, it’s impossible to please God and without Faith we cannot be saved.
