HOW DO YOU DEFINE FAITH?
Faith can mean belief in things hoped for and the trust in what you have not seen but believe in its reality.
We can always have the faith that something good will show up afterward, especially after working very hard or being a good person.
It can also be believing in yourself or your ability to do a task, and I think the main idea is something greater than this world.
It can also be positive thinking, hope, and confidence in our expectations.
Sometimes when we have a problem, we always want assurance or confidence in the solution to that problem, and that is where we apply “Faith” in that situation.
So, It is having trust, confidence, and assurance in things you have not seen.
Looking at it critically, I would say faith is having trust and belief in what you have not seen or sure of
Like the Bible says, But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. “for let, not that man think that he shall receive anything of the lord.
A double-minded mind is unstable in all his ways. So having faith Is believing that what your commonsense might tell you is not the truth. It can also be called allegiance to a course or a person.
In summary, I will say faith is :
- confidence or trust in a person or thing
- Believe that is not based on proof
- Belief in God or doctrines or teachings
- Belief in anything as a code of ethics or standards of merit.
- A system of religious belief, such as the Jewish faith and the Christian faith
- The obligation of loyalty or fidelity to a person, promise, engagement, e.t.c
- Observance of this obligation, loyalty to one’s promise, oath, allegiance, e.t.c
