"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things
not seen."

The way I parse that verse, it says faith is all you have when there is
no concrete evidence.  How are you getting your interpretation out of
that verse?  Another translation?


*Any great truth can -- and eventually will -- be expressed as a cliche
-- a cliche is a sure and certain way to dilute an idea. For instance,
my grandmother used to say, "The black cat is always the last one off
the fence." I have no idea what she meant, but at one time, it was
undoubtedly true. --
