I keep hearing and reading people say "I believe in" followed by Gods, Devils, Supernatural forces and even scientific debates, (Creation, Evolution, etc.) I know what "Believe" means and I know what "in" is. The two words, put together, do noe make sense to me. Can anyone clarify?

"When you believe in something, it means you give yourself fully to that idea"
That is an excellent definition, thank you.
A truly beautiful answer. Thank you.
I agree totally. If the phrase has any meaning at all it is being misused.
I know it makes sense to you but how does the word "believe" followed by the word "in" make sense?
Also; if you have Love, Respect, faith and patience, you have something wonderful. When you add obedience and fear you have an abusive relationship.
Very well put. Let me see if I understand; It is one thing to believe myth as truth and another thing to see myth as presenting archetypes of the human consciousness. Interesting points.
Thank you but there lies my problem. I understand you believe. How does "believe in" make sense?
"we believe in our hearts that God exists."
Thank you edhan; that is the first time, in these answers, that I have seen the phrase "Believe in" make sense.
