Having real faith is more than just believing that God exists. There are millions of people who believe in God yet deliberately do wicked deeds. Such "faith" is like counterfeit money. It looks real but is actually worthless. What, then, is REAL faith?

*God is one. He has no equal.
*Jesus is not Almighty God. He is God's prophet.
*God condemns idolatry in all its forms.
*Humans face a coming day of judgment.
*Countless dead humans will be resurrected to Paradise.
Ask God for help. The prophet Moses prayed to God: "Make me know, please, your ways, that I may now you, in order that I may find favor in your eyes." God heard and answered his prayers. Moses became an outstanding example of faith. God will also help you to cultivate real faith.
