Faith- a hope that God is listening to you.

Yeah, I have it.

Why, God listens.

I think real faith, though, is knowing that God listens, but yeah, otherwise on point

Faith is the belief in God. The attribution of all knowledge and power, seen and unseen to Him and of course Divine Decree.

Yes, I have it.

I have it because naturally, I've always felt that there was some intelligence beyond our imagination that is keeping things like seasons, planets and human development in order. Not believing in things like "luck" and "coincidence", it didn't take me long to become convinced.

faith can be a good substitute for foundation while you are building a foundation

once the foundation is established, faith is no longer necessary



if you rely on faith as your foundation, you might slip and strain a muscle or break your neck

Perhaps a lack of faith can be the differnece between death, a broken neck, or an unharmed one.

Perhaps faith is the difference between a near death experience, and a regular day. How many times do we dodge death, without even realizing we were in jepeordy?

The answers all depend on an individual's life experiences.

I think we can understand it if you can measure it's infuence it has on your life.

The result is the difference between faith and blind faith.

It's like this:

You have faith in somthing, say your skill in basketball. You close your eyes and you lob the ball at that last minute- wether you make it or not it doesn't matter. Your using blind faith.

Now this next year, it's the championships again, and you practiced all year, and now you have even greater faith in your skill. You shoot the ball with your eyes open this time, and you make it.

Just a rough analogy, but it serves it's purpose.
