Faith, with its justifying, sanctifying, and saving power, is independent of science and learning, and may be kindled even in the heart of a little child.
It is good to read the Bible and take to heart its lessons. However, you don't need to be a scholar to have faith. Faith is in your heart, planted their by the creator of the universe and cultivated by the Holy Spirit. Choose to believe and allow your faith to grow.
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
