The relationship between faith and action has not only been the concern of theologians, but also the philosophers have been discussing it. Wittgenstein is one of those philosophers who in both theory and practice have been concerned with the relationship between faith and action - albeit in his own way. Even in Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, which may seem to be merely a pure logical and philosophical work, he has tried to address the issue of faith and action. It is due to this intention that the "sayable" and "showable" discussions are included in the treatise. From his point of view, faith is one of the facts that the believer shows in his action; therefore, there is a concomitance between the intention and action in his view. In this article, we show this claim with many evidences in Wittgenstein's works and the works of his commentators.
