Nikiforos Theotokis: “Faith consists of two parts”

Dover Beach

Nikiforos Theotokis

“Faith consists of two parts: theoretical and practical. Theoretical faith exists when we believe with our mind everything that our faith teaches without doing any good works. Such faith is dead, of no benefit, and incapable of saving man…Practical faith exists when we not only believe in everything our faith teaches, but also carry out and abide by all its orders and statutes.”

– Nikiforos Theotokis
