    Faith is believing, so yes I "believe" in faith - because if I didn't I would have no faith.

    Yes, I believe in having faith.  For one reason everytime I needed Gods help and asked Him for it, He never disappointed me.That is called the Rhema. (The spoken Words of God in the Bible). You see you cannot please God without faith!  His timing is not always our timing!  Mark 9:23,  everything is possible to him who believes!  Faith is the substance of the thing you are hoping for, and the evidence of it not yet seen!  That is calling it forward.  Then you must keep praying for it and thanking God for it.  Isaiah 55:"As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it, without watering the earth, and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sewer, and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth, IT WILL NOT RETURN TO ME EMPTY, BUT WILL ACCOMPLISH WHAT I DESIRE, that is the Rhema, AND achieve the purpose for which I have sent it.  Even speaking the healing words in the Bible will bring healing in our bodies, but we must have faith that His spoken Word, the Rhema,  will do it. For instance the verse= Jesus bore my sins in His body on the tree; therefore I am dead to sin and alive unto God and by His stripes I am healed and made whole. (I Peter 2:24: rom 6:11, IICor. 5:21.. The power is in calling for your healing and health by combining you faith with God's Word.  By doing so you are calling for God's promises to be manifest in your body.  Our problem is that the Word is not in you (nigh in thee), and even not in your mouth (you are not saying it) and not in your heart.  First the Word, the Rhema,  has to be in your mouth, and then in your heart. Then it becomes engraphted in to your heart the more you speak it.  It is very important to your faith that you should be declaring what God has said about you with your own voice!  Giving voice to God's Words in the Bible is the method of calling for the things God has promised us but are not yet manifest in our life!

    Reason, is not something you believe in, it is something you use, along side or instead of faith.

    Reason and faith: in the religious sense, cannot co-exist within a single person's psyche. Remember the story of Isaaq? God demamded that Abraham abandon all reason and sacrifice his son. This is what religions demands - do not ask why you are being asked to do something. Just follow orders.

    Yes, I believe in faith because it is through faith that I am saved by grace. Without faith, it is impossible for me to believe, be saved, or please God.I choose to believe.

    Faith lets you take all the negativity away. It give ease to the spirit that problems won't hinder it.

    both faith and reason have a place - we just differ as to which areas we assign to each.

    i know by reason that we live in a world governed by physical laws such as gravity, evolution and mathematics

    i have faith, that most people are essentially good, and will follow Kant's categorical imperative - to act towards others as you would have them act towards you
