What is Faith

The dictionary says…

noun: faith
complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
"this restores one's faith in politicians"
strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.
"bereaved people who have shown supreme faith"

The KJV Bible says….
Hebrews 11:1 “Now…
I like how you contrasted opponents with proponents and scripture. Faith can mean many different things to all sorts of people from all walks of life. Some think that "faith" is believing something blindly without evidence. While it is certainly possible for that to occur, that is not the correct definition of faith.

"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." – Hebrews 11:1 NASB

The question here is from where did that "assurance" and "conviction" come? I would posit that it comes from the evidence of what we can see. This is why Christianity is not a "blind" faith, but rather a reasonable faith.
Only in a world where faith is difficult can faith exist.

— Lee Strobel
I think it can exist in each, and everyone of us if you believe in God.

    First, I want to say this was a very good read. Great job Karen. Now for your question,

What faith means to me? - -
Faith is having complete trust in someone or something no matter what. It’s not about having hope that something will happen; instead, it’s about knowing that something will happen, because you believe that it will. Faith determines your whole outlook on life. It gives you a reason to live. If you have no faith, you will never have anything to strive for. It is involved with everything in life: from religion to family, to relationships, and even to sports. Faith is the one thing that gives you purpose.
Faith dictates how you view life. With it, faith can make your whole outlook on things positive; but without it, your view will be clouded with negativity. It helps you reach any goal you put your mind to. If you believe that you can achieve something, you will achieve it. On the other hand, if you don’t have faith in yourself, you will never reach those goals. Without it, you would have nothing to look forward to, and life would be an interminable bore. It would be pointless to live a life not having faith.
You have to have faith in yourself in order to do good in whatever you are playing. That does not mean that you have to be conceited and full of yourself. When I play baseball I am not vain, but I do have confidence in myself to make plays. I also have faith in my team. I trust them to make plays and do what they have to do in order for us to succeed. I have faith in my coaches that they will teach and instruct us so we get better and learn from our mistakes. Having faith while playing sports can determine whether you win or lose.
Life is full of faith. Everything you do involves this concept of having complete trust in someone or something no matter what. Whether it be with goals, God, family, relationships, or sports, faith will always be there. It gives you purpose and it determines your whole outlook on life. Without it, your life would be dull and filled with emptiness. Having faith in your life makes living so much better.
Faith is everything in life, but faith in God comes first.


Wow, and Thank you
I really wasn't expecting someone to write a big chapter like you did, but thank you very much, and I agree with you very much.
