WHAT IS FAITH?
As Abraham has shown us, faith is walking through one's life trusting God's plan, even with all the pain, suffering and death that may loom on the horizon.
Abraham believed God and yet was willing to offer his only son.
So, Isaac, dead or alive, Abraham still believed God and that he would be the father of many nations.
Faith is Faith because it goes with us believing through the chaos, not around it!

"Jesus never spoke judgmentally about anyone!" 1 Peter 2:23 There was not once a bad word toward prostitutes, gays, abortion or anyone else of us that comprise humankind, all who struggle and suffer with brokenness and sin.
However Jesus hated hypocrites (called them fools, vipers, snakes and children of hell) and spoke 7 woes against these religious that orchestrated his crucifixion. Hypocrites, they are people that think they are perfect but have their own dark secrets - sins, failures and shortcomings while ostracizing others. Hypocrites are the only people Jesus warned us about and told parables condemning them. Cf. Matthew 23:1-39
Whether you are a non-church goer, prayerful Christian, a daily Mass goer, pastor, priest or bishop - to call out, name and persecute others while hiding your own contradictions, sins and weaknesses is a surefire way to be on the wrong side of God on judgment day.
Jesus said, "For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Matthew 7:2
There is an alternative! Jesus said, "Blessed are the merciful, they will receive mercy." Matthew 5:7
