The Bible tells us that God has given us each a measure of faith. What we do with it is what matters. We can leave it lie dormant and let it waste away or we can continue to use it and make it stronger. It can be likened to the parable of the talents, only substitute faith for talents. If we don't use it and build it up, we won't have the faith we need when the big trials come our way. God already knows how much faith you have in a given situation, but when we are tested we find out where we are lacking. Often, our circumstances show a different picture of our faith than what we believe about ourselves. ---- == Faith don't require sources or proofs. If you require sources or proofs, then faith is just an illusion. Quick reference Encarta Dictionary; = faith = faith [ fayth ] (plural faiths)

noun Definition: 1. belief or trust: belief in, devotion to, or trust in somebody or something, especially without logical proof

The Definition of Faith: Hebrews 11New King James Version (NKJV)By Faith We Understand11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

Why did king tutankaten change his name to King Tutankhamun?

There are quite a few theories involved with this. Some sources say that the Priesthood of Amun took Tutankaten and changed his name, while other sources say he chose to change his name to show the transition from his father's (Akhenaten) monotheistic faith, back to the traditional polytheistic faith. The Golden Throne found in the antichamber of the tomb shows the change between the two, but allows historians to see that he still maintained the ways of his father.
