Can you have 'Faith in God' without prayers and religious practices?
Many people have faith in God, yet they don't practice their religion or pray. They just innately believe. But in most cases, the most important part of religion is having a personal relationship with God. Without praying and reading His word, (just like talking to anyone else you want to get to know) you have to wonder how strong their faith really could be.
You can't attain the full faith in God through prayers and religious practices.
But you can attain the full faith in God through Spiritual Knowledge without prayers and religious practices!
Of course you can. Religion is unmitigated evil. Men and women of faith need each others society to have the courage to stand before their God.
But as soon as a few decent people of faith gather together, up creep the priests, the pseudo-priests the paedophile priests, the holy Joes, the righteous, the whited sepulchres, the blessed, God's chosen and every other sort of religious filth.
This is a good question.
I think that the answer is a definite yes.
You may have a tacit intuition and even a past experience that showed you that there was something fundamental about life that one could call "Faith in God", whatever names one may give to that formless or absolute Source condition.
I do think that prayer and practice is a way for one to cultivate that connection or relationship to the source. Though it is easy to do such things in a ritualistic and childish way, for the sake of self improvement rather than a magnification of that Being, God etc.
