“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
King James Version (KJV)
10:17 Faith, indeed, ordinarily cometh by hearing; even by hearing the word of God.
Ro 10:17 So then faith [cometh] by hearing. Hence the need of preaching. If God by a miracle wrought faith in the heart, he could dispense with the preacher. But the divine arrangement is that it should result from hearing the word of God preached. For an example of the gospel plan, see Ac 18:8.
