Emuna is the word that is usually translated as faith. It's meaning is different:

The Hebrew root aman means firm, something that is supported or secure. This word is used in Isaiah 22:23 for a nail that is fastened to a "secure" place. Derived from this root is the word emun meaning a craftsman. A craftsman is one who is firm and secure in his talent. Also derived from aman is the word emunah meaning firmness, something or someone that is firm in their actions. When the Hebrew word emunah is translated as faith misconceptions of its meaning occur. Faith is usually perceived as a knowing while the Hebrew emunah is a firm action. To have faith in God is not knowing that God exists or knowing that he will act, rather it is that the one with emunah will act with firmness toward God's will.


Understand?

having faith in God and believing in God is the same thing to me - no need to get into translations - a firm believer - secure about what he/she believes - to the point where they take someones life over what they BELIEVE -

i tell believers, don't tell me what you believe, show me what you know -

and everyone thinks/ believes they got the correct translation - to the point where they are killing each other over what they think/believe they got - i see it more as a big misunderstanding
