Discussion for Proverbs 12:22

    Perception, is not faith. Perception is a physical waiting for something to happen. Faith is an actual occurrence, a spiritual occurrence. That which is flesh is flesh, that which is of spirit is spirit. We who have a lively hope live not according to the world, but according to the spirit of Christ who lives in us! Perception is one of those sins that a child of God wars against .Satan would like nothing more then for you to believe that your situation is based on your works (perception) of things. You must give yourself totally to the savior. COMPLETELY! Faith in the risen savior! Perception is of the world! When you except Christ ,you are no longer of the world!
