Without faith it is impossible to please God. The reason for this is that “whatsoever is not of faith is sin” (Rom. 14:23), and of course sin cannot please God.
This is why it is that, as stated by the Spirit of Prophecy on the first page of the Review, Oct. 18, 1898, “The knowledge of what the Scripture means when urging upon us the necessity of cultivating faith is more essential than any other knowledge that can be acquired.”
And for this cause we shall hereafter, in this place in each number of the Review give a Scripture lesson on faith—what it is, how it comes, how to exercise it—that every reader of this paper may have this knowledge that “is more essential than any other knowledge that can be acquired.”
