Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of not seen. Hebrews 11:1
Hebrews 11:1 answers and clarifies this misunderstanding. The verse: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped the evidence of things not seen.”
Substance. or, ground, or, confidence.Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

According to Augustine in , those things are said to be seen which are present to the senses or to the intellect. But things that are said to be present to the intellect do not exceed its capacity.One should reply that, according to some people, the Apostle intended by this definition to show not what faith but rather what faith .
