Espirational Faith

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." –The Apostle Paul

What is Faith?

How can you believe that? What is your evidence? Have you ever been asked these questions about your religious faith? Most everyone serious about their spiritual lives have. But just why do you believe what you believe? Have you ever asked yourself that question?

In the comments section below please put a brief comment explaining the fundamental concepts of your religious beliefs and why you believe them. This must be kept short so people will take the time to read them (300 words) so I suggest composing it on a Word program first, then copy/paste your finished answer here.

All answers will be read and placed on this blog if they meet comment guidelines found on the “About” page of this blog. My example is the first comment below. We hope you enjoy this experience.

One thought on “What is Faith?

  1. Hi, I’m Bob R. I grew up and live in the Midwest United States. When I was a child I was raised in a home where I heard the Christian/Jewish Bible read nightly, then we discussed the meaning of what we read and said prayers and went to bed. The lessons soaked deeply into my subconscious and I never thought to seriously question them until I was in college years later.

    I went to a secular university, and there was faced with all forms of religions, denominations and even professing atheists. It was then that I asked myself why I and my family believed what we did religiously, and why others believed as they do. While questioning the reason why I believed, I never came close to denouncing my faith; it was too well grounded within me for that. But it was a good exercise in how strong my faith would be in the future.

    I believe there is a Universal, Living God, the creator of the Universe where we live, and the giver of life. I believe in the person called Jesus, the Christ, pronounced in the Holy Bible as the son of God. And I believe further that those who believe in this Christ, and who put on his lifestyle, can obtain eternal rewards such as eternal life.

    But I also believe that other faiths have legitimate origins and worship the same God as do we. The Jewish faith and nation is well known to be the origin of the Christian faith. Islamic believers have similar roots. The Buddhists system of faith had no historical connection with the middle east, but it does have a philosophy very similar as that presented in The Proverbs, written by King Solomon.

    I am an incurable Christian believer. My faith is strong. Why do I believe? Simple. The evidence of billions of believers in the existence of God throughout the world, throughout the ages, is simply too strong not to believe. What’s your excuse?
