The nature of Faith
Faith serves a major evolutionary purpose and has been an essential part of human nature since time immemorial. When shared by members of a group, faith strongly supports that groups internal cohesion.
Faith when shared by large numbers of people, turns a group of aimless, discontented individuals into a purposeful, powerful force.
Faith is complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
Everyday I put my faith in dozens of people and things; my next breath, my next heartbeat, my ability to make the right choice, in my family, in other drivers, the power company, my internet provider and yes even the government. I have faith that all is well and working out for the good of those who choose to believe in the things that are unseen. Naive, maybe. But the alternative is to worry about all those things and frankly I just don’t have the time or energy for that.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
