I'm not going to deal with this question today but rather elaborate on its definition. It was interesting to note the different angles bloggers addressed when dealing with faith. Scriptures often interchanges the word faith with religion, belief, trust, and positive expectation. Not always beneficial to the readers. It could lead to confusion especially when we attempt to understand the state of faith. What I mean to say, can faith grow or does it dwell in a absolute state? Just like God's unconditional love, is faith unconditional? We can clearly see that trust and belief can be subjugated to growth but what about faith? Can faith increase or decrease? Before you answer make sure that the scripture that comes to mind is not referring to trust or belief. Because both of these do indeed fluctuate in stature. But what of faith?It is in my opinion that true faith is as limitless as Divine love.
Again I say don't confuse trust and belief for faith. Faith is the key component to love and love must be unconditional. Faith is what propagates the golden rule. But trust is rooted in self. Trust requires a certain amount of evidence prior in proceeding with a matter. Faith on the other-hand, pushes forward with a positive expectation regardless of the evidence at hand. I may resort to faith when trust is not available.
