Does having faith means blindly believing in God?


If you think faith is believing blindly, then you've not read the definition of faith, which is "faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things that cannot be seen". Now, what distinguish humans from lower animals are that we ask questions, and seek answers. The questions a thinking person would ask regarding the definition of faith are "What is the substance of hope?", and "Where is the evidence of God?" Seeking and finding answers to these questions effectively translates faith into the pursuit of knowledge, rather than blindly believing in God.

    Another saying I've heard is: "Having (faith) means never having to worry about "how". True believers don't stress themselves out. As they're fond of saying: "Let go. Let God." Naturally very few people have that kind of faith! Most of us worry :)

    You're right CV. We cannot find proof of God in a laboratory using machines and tools. The proof of God comes to us individually through revelation and personal experience.
