     So Jesus is walking down the road to bring the dead girl
back to life, and another woman needs to be healed and says to
herself if only I can touch his cloth I will be better, so she
does so and Jesus turns to her and says, 'By your FAITH you
are healed.'

     So did Jesus heal her, or did her faith heal her.  Was it
faith in JESUS or Faith in Faith.  If it was Faith in Jesus, it
had to be false because it was not Jesus who healed her, it
was her own faith in Jesus that healed her.

     So which is it, faith or Jesus that heals people.  If it
is faith, who needs Jesus.  If it is Jesus, who needs faith?

     If it is faith in Jesus that heals us, that seems kind
of circuitous.
