Faith Formation

"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." James 1:2-4

How is our faith formed? What experiences and trials does God us to help us become like Christ? What role does the church have in forming our faith?

How I Found Myself in The Confession

God doesn’t hate sin because sin is bad for Him. Sin grieves God because it is His creatures willfully turning away from that perfect love, and toward their own destruction.
