estimate the importance of belief or faith. It is true that we cannot be saved by faith alone, neither can we be saved without it.

That is because it requires all the items of the plan of salvation to please God, while the omission of one fundamental item is enough to displease Him. This is especially true of such a principle as faith which is the motive power of all our actions as the present chapter will show.
