Faith – Trust – Belief

Have you taken that leap of faith? Unconditional trust?  It is worth it; so very much on the other side to embrace and grow from.

Faith is the confident belief or trust in the truth or trustworthiness of a person, idea, or thing.[1][2]

For example, the word “faith” can refer to a religion itself or to religion in general. As with “trust”, faith involves a concept of future events or outcomes, and is used conversely for a belief “not resting on logical proof or material evidence.[3][4] Informal usage of the word “faith” can be quite broad, and may be used in place of “trust” or “belief.”

Faith is often used in a religious context, as in theology, where it almost universally refers to a trusting belief in a transcendent reality, or else in a Supreme Being and/or said being’s role in the order of transcendent, spiritual things.

Faith is in general the persuasion of the mind that a certain statement is true.[5] It is the belief and the assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another, based on his or her authority and truthfulness.[6]

The English word faith is dated from 1200–50, from the Latin fidem, or fidēs, meaning trust, akin to fīdere to trust.[1]
