Karen's Triond page. What is faith? A little boy in a Sunday School class answered: "Faith means believing in stuff you know isn't true."
I found a slightly wiser answer online: "Faith is the benefit of the doubt I give to that which I do not understand based on the sufficient evidence of what I do know and understand."
Faith is much more common than most people give themselves credit for. You depend on faith for almost everything you do: from getting on a airplane to sitting on a chair. Without faith, you would be paralyzed by fear and skepticism. You couldn't even take a breath for fear of air borne poison.
Faith is not the absence of evidence. It is evidence. Hebrews 11:1 says "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things unseen." Billy Graham uses the example of wind. We can't see wind (except perhaps after Taco Tuesday) but we see the effects of the wind - in the leaves on the trees, or your hat blowing away.
To be of any use to you, faith needs an object. And faith is only as trustworthy as its object. You can have all the faith you want in Santa Claus, but the big guy in the red suit just doesn't deliver. But God does. Just look at the leaves on the trees - God designed them.
