3. On faith

    1. If anyone says that
      human reason is so independent that faith cannot be commanded by God:

let him be anathema.

      2. If anyone says that
      divine faith is not to be distinguished from natural knowledge about God and moral matters, and consequently that for divine faith it is not required that revealed truth should be believed because of the authority of God who reveals it:

let him be anathema.

      3. If anyone says that
      divine revelation cannot be made credible by external signs, and that therefore men and women ought to be moved to faith only by each one's internal experience or private inspiration:

let him be anathema.

      4. If anyone says that
      all miracles are impossible, and that therefore all reports of them, even those contained in sacred scripture, are to be set aside as fables or myths; or that miracles can never be known with certainty, nor can the divine origin of the christian religion be proved from them:

let him be anathema.

      5. If anyone says that
      the assent to christian faith is
        not free, but is necessarily produced by arguments of human reason; or that
      the grace of God is necessary only for living faith which works by charity:

let him be anathema.

    6. If anyone says that
      the condition of the faithful and those who have not yet attained to the only true faith is alike, so that Catholics may have a just cause for calling in doubt, by suspending their assent, the faith which they have already received from the teaching of the church, until they have completed a scientific demonstration of the credibility and truth of their faith:

let him be anathema.
