    The Intellect Can Only Take You So Far

    The intellect will always take you to the edge of the cliff. Then it will tell you about gravity and how you will be smashed on the rocks below. But faith will tell you you can fly to the other side and be free. On another occasion Babaji's sacred circle was disturbed by the...

    I Have Questions For God .who Shall Be His Defense?

    Who knows the bible to answer the questions I want to understand. I have little to no faith. It bothers me when my mother tells me to pray when it just bothers me and i don't feel much anymore. I mean I wasn't much of a believer before my bad past Now Im just even less.

    Scriptural Answers

    Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.  (Heb. 11:1) We live by faith, not by sight.  (2 Col. 5:7) But faith without deeds is dead.  A person will be held accountable by what he does...

    Why Have Faith When You Can Have Proof?

    I dont get faith.  I really don't get how fundies get so psycho about their faith.  I think that is going to be my next area of study.  Theistic Sociology - there has to be a brain issue or personality type that allows certain people to fall into the...

    Don't Lose Hope, We've Already Lost Faith.

    Lost your faith yet? Tell me, where did you find it? I conclude that faith is a nothing word, it is a vestigial word; no longer crucial or even relevant to human experience. Words that may be used in place of faith include:  Confidence, trust, belief, Honesty, loyalty...

    Have Faith Only In Mankind!

    I think the only faith there should be is the faith in mankind. All religions have a bloody and repressive past/present and none can help anyone. But through the hard work and science mankind can not only survive but change anything he desires on the planet and beyond. All our...

    We Don't Understand It Completely

    I think Faith couldn't be understood completely by the human being. There are too much ways to show Faith but what's the true one, what's Faith really?

    Just a Thought.

    i don't think faith can really be understood, anymore than love can. it can be experienced, but can't be put under a microscope, or recreated in a lab for analysis, or even accurately described to someone else. it's too personal and amorphous to be held at arm's length. just a...
