"Again, I tried to make them understand the Power of Faith.
In the gospels, it has been stated I said that if a man had faith the size of a mustard seed he would be able to move mountains.
This statement is a misinterpretation of what I truly said and it reveals how little my disciples and gospellers understood my teachings when we were on earth.
If a person were to have 'faith' the size of a mustard seed - what does that mean? How can you measure faith in such a way?
Faith is faith.
It is a 'power of total conviction' in the mind, possessing the mind and cannot be restricted in 'size'.
Faith, arising out of your need to believe in something, because such a belief will serve your purposes in some way, can be powerful and strong, but never could it be estimated in 'size'! Belief is even stronger. Belief is the offspring of hearsay and logic. Because you have heard something and been convinced that what you have heard or read is true, you develop a deep belief in what you have heard. You believe it to be true. You believe in a total, complete way which defies contradiction.
I was constantly telling the people: 'Believe you will receive - and you will receive'. [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 3, page 64]
