Life of Faith, book by H. H. Pope Shenouda III

25- The slow heart in faith

 

4. A fourth kind, from the weak faith, is the slow heart in faith. Maybe it comes from a slow understanding, or from no comprehension, so the person's faith does not come quickly. This was the kind of faith the disciples of Emmaus had in respect to the resurrection of the Lord. The Lord rebuked them by saying “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things” (Luke 24:25-26). He then began to explain to them what was written in all the Scriptures concerning Christ. so that they believed, or so that he cures this tardiness in their faith resulting from their little knowledge or little understanding.

In this example we could also say that it is sound to rectify the misunderstandings concerning the faith. It is much better that

way than to despise and to mock such persons, it won't bring any good results and it won't read to the real faith.
