Transitional Translations

Today a belief that is not based on proof is the ultimate reality that underlies all outward manifestation of things that are desired and expected to be obtained as promised by God, the thing that furnishes proof of the things that are not perceived by the use of the eyes.

Yesterday the assent of the mind to the truth of divine revelation, on the authority of God's testimony, accompanied with a cordial assent of the will or act of approval of the heart with an entire confidence or trust in God's character and declarations, and in the character and doctrines of Christ, with an unreserved surrender of the will to his guidance, and dependence on his merits for salvation is that which has a firm, confident foundation in the awaited joyful salvation from the mortal body as promised by God and the fulfillment of the same promises with joy, it is an evidential proof of the things not perceived by the use of the eyes.

Hebrews 11:1-2
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval.

Ever think that some kind of deception is being perpetrated on you? Well just check your dictionary and apply the meaning of the words from the Webster's 1828 and the Mirriam-Webster online dictionary and apply the definitions to a well known Scripture verse.

This process is a direct parallel to the evangelising of the atheist today and their imputation of the atheistic worldview upon the Word of God.
