The “Inner Recognition of Truth” That Is Faith Is Found Only in People Who Are Devoted to Caring (Continued)

To summarize, to the extent that we turn our backs on evils because they are sins and turn to the Lord, we are engaged in caring, and therefore in faith to the same extent.

On our being engaged in caring to the extent that we turn our backs on evils because they are sins and turn toward the Lord, see Teachings about Life for the New Jerusalem, Sections 67-73 and 74-91, and on our having faith to the same extent, see Sections 42-52. On the true meaning of the word “caring,” see Section 114 of that work.

from Life/Faith: Teaching for the New Jerusalem on Faith, Section 23
