§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Hebrews 11:1 (Pt. 3) Thought/Prayer:The Evidence of Things that Appear Not. Topics: 2@ end.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  (KJV)  http://www.bible.com  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

When considering some different translations of this basic scripture about faith, the Douay-Rheims (DRA) translation has it:  “Now, faith is the substance of things to be hoped for, the evidence of things that appear not.”  This is a lovely way of putting it:  “the evidence of things that appear not.”  Yes, faith appears not.  It’s invisible; it’s never actually seen.  And yet it is soooo huge. 

The King James also uses the word “substance” which is seen also in the Darby in a different grammatical form.  The DRA goes back over 400 years.  It seems that the translation itself has substance if we are still using it today.  It says that faith is the substance of things to be hoped for.  Could we possibly read into this that there will be things in the future to be hoped for, unknown to us at the present time.  It’s a pleasant thought.

We’ve considered five different translations of this banner scripture about faith.  All of them are a bit different, but each one has its strong points, and all of them are only about one subject:  Faith.

It’s beautiful that we can enjoy the different wordings of the same thoughts in the Bible.  They all come together at the end of the day to portray God through His Son and the Holy Spirit.  The Trinity is the beginning and the end of our faith, no matter how the different Bible translators have put it, over the ages.

Lord, we praise you for all of the words in the Bible, each and every one of them, because they all point us to You, to Christ, to Your Spirit.  Help us to be faithful to keep ourselves in the Word, Your Words, because through them we are strengthened to minister to those around us, including pro-life work. 

Topics:  Pray for more faith, and promise God to act on our faith, not matter how we consider it in the words we think in our heads.
