Is faith important in maintaining a peaceful society? Why?
Depends on the type of faith.
Faith, ultimately, is about personal belief, but there are many types of personal belief. It depends on how the belief is acted upon.
If the belief is channeled into self-improvement then it is a force to be reckoned with and helps make a society better.
if the belief is channeled into "moral superiority" then it will result in conflict instead.
Faith in a divine being who is love and good and who is within you; faith in one's ability to be good and faith in others, too; and faith in peace itself . . . these are the kinds of faith that are important to maintain a peaceful society. I perceive faith as some kind of a belief, an inner disposition, a kind of conditioning; thus, whatever we believe in, it will be so.
spirituality is more important than faith.blind faith has led to many problems in society through out the ages,
Faith in each other is what makes a peaceful society. When every one learns to trust one another and strive for others to trust them then the world will truly be at peace.
faith in each other is important but as we see , it is quickly dwindling. too many people seem to need spiritual faith which is foolish as it in counter-productive and does nothing to help when it comes to each other.
if people had the same faith in each other that they do in religion, the world would be a grand place.
Faith is important in maintaining conflict among society/societies. Religion is the number one cause of war. Peaceful societies should appeal to reason and ethics so that it supersedes potential appeals to faith that disrupt peace.
If you mean a peaceful and "free" society, I'd say, "yes." I suppose that you could have a race of slavers and slaves without it and I think that's what you would have without religion. Without belief in God, there is no reason why the stronger should not subdue the weak. Without God, "might makes right."
