    Faith speaks what it believes.

    Once you have faith you will speak what you believe.

    If I use above sentence to my friend he might take it personally. If I could remove 'you' it might become general statement.

    Faith speaks what it believes.

    Is this sentence correct and meaningful?

    Re: Faith speaks what it believes.

    Sorry, but neither sentence means anything to me.

    Please note that I have changed your thread title. You aren't 'trying to omit a noun' — 'you' is a pronoun.

    Re: Faith speaks what it believes.

    Bible preachers differentiate the word 'faith' from the word 'believing'. I can believe that she loves me but such beliefs are not classified as faith. when we pray then we have faith. When preachers explain faith they explain with the word believe which is more common word. when I pray for something I should believe that my prayer is answered immediately then that is faith though i didn't get my prayer answered yet. if i have such faith then I will speak about it to others as if I got it. All these bible preachers come from USA.

    Re: Faith speaks what it believes.

    Everyone makes a distinction between faith and belief. Faith is belief without evidence.
