Distinguish between make-believe faith and real faith

<quote from Real Faith & Reason>
We need to distinguish between make-believe faith and real faith. Disguised as a dark counterfeit, we see the common human-generated fake “faith,” pretending that something is true and then calling this pretense “faith,” but this pretense isn’t real faith. Real faith begins and ends with hearing the living Christ and responding to Him in submission.
“I believe that by my own reason or strength I cannot believe in Jesus Christ my Lord or come to Him. But the Holy Spirit has called me through the Gospel, enlightened me with His gifts, and sanctified and preserved me in true faith.” (Martin Luther)
Jesus said, “My sheep hear My voice.” Since we’re following Christ, we experience this leading and teaching from the Holy Spirit, but for those who aren’t following Christ, such an experience might seem unreal. However, when He leads and we follow, His faith comes.
