What is faith?

Faith is a belief, or confidence in a person or a thing or idea derived from Latin Fides and the old French eat. Religious people often see belief as a trust based on a perceived degree of warrant, while those who are more critical of religion prefer to think of faith as simply a believe without proofs.

In religion the faith is characterized by “belief in God,” or by the doctors or the teachings of religion.
