Dear Michael,
Two items:
1- How then, would you explain James 2:1 "Do not have the faith of
Christ with partiality"?

2- The context is very important, and it seems that "faithfulness of
God" can be ruled out in Mark 11:22 because of the repetition of
"believe" in the verses that follow. The injunction of the passage is
to believe, not to be faithful.
