"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."
Are they very careful not to want anything that is impossible? Or do they think that their faith is smaller than a mustard seed, and so they could not move a mountain by telling it to move?
How do you interpret the verse?
Faith or no faith, no matter how hard you pray, wish, fast or meditate, you will not be able to regrow a lost limb, or move a mountain from "here to there". So, what does this verse really mean?Answer Question
I also want to add that there are times in the bible where things are symbolic, I do not believe every single thing in the bible is literal but I believe all of it to be truth! Jesus used parables to teach at times and many authors used metaphors. But what can be taken literally should be taken literally. There are parts in the book of Revelation that are more symbolic. I believe these things will be more clear to us as they occur. They needed to be written in a way that people of that time period could comprehend so they could record it.
