Faith Analyzed

        In today's Gospel reading from Mark 1, Jesus commanded an unclean spirit to come out of a man, and the spirit convulsed the man and with a loud cry came out of him. I am thinking that the Lord does not command us in such a way, for he wants us to exercise our free will to listen to him so that we may have faith. In other words, faith is necessary for us to know God, and it is brought forth by an act of our free will.
