I think what you are referring to here is when Montag first goes to Faber's house and talks to him about books.

Faber explains to Montag about why books are so dangerous to people.  I would think you could say that that further justifies Montag's faith.  Faber tells Montag that books help people understand things.  They pull the universe together and make it easier to comprehend.  When they do that, they show reality in all its good and bad aspects.  People do not like that because they only want to see the good.

By telling Montag that books have this power, Faber justifies Montag's faith in books.
