“By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.” Hebrews 11:7
Faith caused Noah to act. He built an ark. James writes, “faith without deeds is dead” (James 2:26). If our faith doesn’t cause us to act, it’s only information or mental assent. Unless our beliefs are accompanied by action, it’s not faith. Noah’s faith condemned the world because everyone had the same opportunity as Noah—to act in faith.
