Faith in the Rebbe

We "Chabadniks" who believe the Rebbe to be Moshiach believe so based on faith in this Tzaddik.

Even had we figured out for ourselves the Rebbe was Moshiach and thereby arrived at this conclusion, the conclusion would be a lie because its foundation is a lie. Who are we to determine faith for ourselves - based on our own intellect?

No. We arrived at that conclusion strictly on faith. Thereafter, if things make sense and things could then be made sense of, so much the better. But the basis for believing the Rebbe is Moshiach is strictly from that which he disseminated.

Building a faith based on rationale is bound to become a disaster, even if it reached the right conclusion, because the process is a fabrication of an imperfect human mind. Only total submission to the Tzaddik's words, most especially those of the Tzaddik and Nassi of the generation, the Moses of the generation, can and always will align itself with the pure truth.
