1. confidence or trust in a person or thing: faith in another's ability. (Can apply to general people.)2. belief that is not based on proof: He had faith that the hypothesis would be substantiated by fact. (Can apply to science and rationalists.)3. belief in god or in the doctrines or teachings of religion: the firm faith of the Pilgrims. (Can apply to religious groups.)Origin:
1200–50; Middle English feith < Anglo-French fed, Old French feid, feit < Latin fidem, accusative of fidēs trust, akin to fīdere to trust[from Anglo-French feid , from Latin fidēs trust, confidence]My little rant on faith...
Some people are just so arrogant in their little lives and think they are so much bigger then they really are. I'm not saying people are little insignificant beings... I'm saying people put to much time in knowing how intelligent they are, based on what they choose to believe. Then have the arrogance to assume they are, or who ever thinks just like them are, the only ones worthy to walk the face of the earth. Really?
I feel people are different, there are no set rules. In spite of what you think you know, we are only given/have so much to work with. Regardless how far we as people dig into the past... Every thing is based off of theory and the only way of really knowing is having been there, seeing, or experiencing it. Other wise your knowledge is based off of faith. Regardless how you word it, it's faith in some way, shape, or sort.
That's how I feel about life and the word faith.
In this post I'm not looking to knock a persons belief, I'm just stating how I see it.
How do you guys feel about the word faith and how it ties into your belief or path you chose in life?
