2 Thessalonians 3:2 ... for all men have not faith.

Since the Bible tells us "all men have NOT faith" – how is it that so many churches and pastors and theologians teach that man is saved by his own faith?

Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ,...

Notice that Ephesians 2:8 tells us that the faith which saved us is NOT of ourselves. Of course, we know the reason why it is not of ourselves – it is because "all men have not faith.”
