What is the difference between Faith and Religion?
Are these two terms interchangeable or they are quite different. I think Religion is a wider term that encompasses faith along with some other things. Your input is appreciated.
Religion is a particular way of life suggested by a set of learned people (sometimes an individual also) from time to time and place to place.
It has suggested and recommended path to Spirituality which goes through an individual, his life, his family and the society.
Faith is one of the most important tools in the hands of the individual to successfully complete his journey of life through many hurdles, challenges, testing times, competition and exams. This is also a great self development tool.
From my own beliefs, I don't consider myself a religious person, but I do have faith.
To me, my definition is that I believe in what we can't necessarily see, feel, touch, hear or smell, but I have faith. I believe anyway.
Whereas, I have attended churches with rituals and customs of their own. For example, they religiously do things a certain way and the whole congregation follows them. I am not one to participate in ritualistic customs of a particular church.
I hope that clarifies what I mean.
I like to keep things as simple as possible so my answer is going to be simple as well. I see the two words to be totally different from each other. Religion is what you have been taught. Faith is what you believe and not necessarily what you were taught to believe. Hope it helps.
Some people use "faith" and "belief" interchangeably, but I feel they are not.
Religion is the body of knowledge and rituals used in practicing a set of beliefs. Faith transcends belief.
Belief is imperfect spanning many levels of confidence. Biblical literalists "believe" that their views of scripture are right and those of others are wrong. For instance, they believe that the universe is only 6,000 years old. Others have different beliefs about scripture, including a belief in evolution and a very old universe.
Faith, on the other hand, is perfect. It is the perfection of confidence needed to walk on water, to perform other miracles and to create. This is purely spiritual, timeless and free of all dichotomy. Faith is at Truth.
Just as belief is at effect (perception), faith is at cause (creation).
Belief is a product of ego; faith is a product of spirit.
