When we hear the word faith we often think of religion. Many see faith as being something we need to get to heaven. What is faith? What does it have to do with getting to heaven?
Everyone’s view of the world encompasses their faith position. Faith does not stand alone. Faith is always related to ones view of reality. A person does not just have faith. Faith, by definition, is believing in something even though it can not be seen. To have faith in something is to believe that the something that you are believing in is really real or true, even though you have no direct, objective,, (usually physical) evidence that is is real. Generally, we do not talk about faith that something is really real when we can see and touch it.
