Hm, I think Will is doing a rather mistaken interpretation of the meaning of faith in the biblical texts where it's used; mainly it seems to mean 'steadfastness' - as in 'be reliable, faithful', rather than anything about reassurance from god.

OTOH, this is a common reading among protestants - the entire reformation kind of hinges on this conflation.
