The Bible teaches that faith is substance and evidence. It is not something that is "blind" as some people teach. Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the stubstance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." When a person has faith, it is based on factual evidence. And people who have faith also have the works to go along with that faith. Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
"Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works" (James 2:17, 18).
