Do you have true faith?

In Jesus' and the prophet's critique, self righteous religion is always marked by insensitivity to issues of social justice while true faith is marked by profound concern for the poor & marginalized -Timothy Keller

True faith is marked by many things, profound concern for the poor & marginalized being one of them.

And while the above is indeed import it is also true that profound concern for the poor & marginalized can exist in the absence of faith.

Of course the quote is most probably made within a broader context and so this is less of a statement and more of an observation. What say you?
