SAY YOU BELIEVE

Rabbi Nachman teaches,

Faith depends on a person’s mouth. We must say that we believe – say it out loud! “I will make Your faithfulness known with my mouth ” (Psalms 89: 2 ).

When a person is experiencing a crisis of faith, or even passing doubts, it is very beneficial to say aloud: “I believe!” Simply giving expression to your faith in words is itself an act of faith, and this can bring you to true faith.

Likewise, you should also be very careful never to say anything that implies even the slightest lack of faith, let alone total disbelief. Even if you are a believer in your heart, never express disbelief even as a joke – not even if you are merely quoting someone else to ridicule their opinion. To do this is very wrong and can be very damaging to your faith. Even as a joke it is forbidden to say anything which implies disrespect of G-d.

Likutey Moharan II, 44
