That's not what it says. It says faith is given to you. Deal with it.

Ot days faith is given to you. Romans 12:3. When will you believe scripture?
 
That's not what it says. It says faith is given to you. Deal with it.
Nope,
Unchecked Copy Box
Heb 11:6 - But without faithit is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. To even go to God YOU must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.
 
And your denying scripture. The verse does not classify different kinds of faith. What is does say is that God gives faith. Why dont you believe it?
You are in denial
Romans 12:6 (KJV 1900) — 6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

Certainly. And who is it that give the proportion of faith. Wait for it.........God. LOL just like it says
 
Faith is given to you. Romans 12:3

If belief is not a command, decree or statute then what is it?

1 John 3:23

Gifted faith does not invalidate your own faith. It is help though IMO. even to increasing your own faith.

As the Apostles said: "increase our faith".

sorry that refers to spiritual gifting not saving faith

Romans 12:3–8 (ESV) — 3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. 4 For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, 5 so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6 Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; 7 if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; 8 the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

such gifts are imparted by the spirit of whom you must first have saving faith to receive

Nope. Faith is given. It is "obtained" as Peter points out. The Spiritual gifts are proportioned by the Spirit like it says.
 
obtained does not say it was irresistably, unilaterally infused

you are reading your doctrine into the text
What does it mean? Where did they obtain faith itself from of not themselves?

Why would you obtain something according to you is inherent in man?
