Thus 'faith' becomes an act of trust in action, the search along a defined path of strict self discipline, [a test of the human heart] to discover His 'Word' of a direct individual intervention into the natural world by omnipotent power that confirms divine will, law, command and covenant, which at the same time, realigns our mortal moral compass with the Divine, "correcting human nature by a change in natural law, altering biology, consciousness and human ethical perception beyond all natural evolutionary boundaries."
So like it or no, and many won’t, a new spiritual teaching, a moral wisdom not of human intellectual origin, transcending subjectivity, wholly testable by faith, meeting all Enlightenment criteria of direct, evidence based causation and definitive proof now exists, and carries all the implications that suggests. Nothing short of an intellectual, moral and spiritual revolution is getting under way. To test or not to test, that is the question?

Within the bubble of personal belief then yes, faith moves mountains. To the third party observer nothing happened, the earth didn't move, the claimed experiment failed to provide a response. To the third party observer the experimenter is self-delusional. You plant your onions and you sow your crop. Given the choice to be in that bubble of faith or outside, I happily choose the intellectually honest conclusion that there is no external all-powerful God and that if there were, He would absolutely be worthy only of detestation, not worship.
It's delightful to see you post again, welcome back.
