"the strength of his convictions"

Posted by Patty on April 11, 2000

I'm a little confused by the phrase "he has the strength of his convictions". Does it mean that a person has strong convictions, or does it mean that a person is given strength through having convictions?

Is this a phrase that is sometimes misapplied?
