Making Sense of Faith
Extensive knowledge of the Bible and Christianity is necessary for biblical faith.
Romans 4:1-3 (NIV) What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather, discovered in this matter?  If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about--but not before God.  What does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness."
This is why "it was credited to him as righteousness."  The words "it was credited to him" were written not for him alone,  but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness--for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.  He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.
Romans 10:9-13 (NIV) That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.  As the Scripture says,
"Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame."  For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile--the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,  for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
Confessing “Jesus is Lord” is more important than believing in Jesus’ resurrection
Heb. 12:1-2 (NIV) Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.  Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
