- religion, faith, religious belief: a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny "he lost his faith but not his morality"
- faith, trust: complete confidence in a person or plan etc "he cherished the faith of a good woman"; "the doctor-patient relationship is based on trust"
- religion, faith, organized religion: an institution to express belief in a divine power "he was raised in the Baptist religion"; "a member of his own faith contradicted him"
- faith: loyalty or allegiance to a cause or a person "keep the faith"; "they broke faith with their investors"
Now, when you hear the word Faith, the first thought that might jump to mind is Religion, whatever religion it may be. It may bring to mind a Deity, whatever deity it may be. And for some, of a more intellectual and/or scientific bent, it might bring about some skepticism in the idea of having faith in something unseen or unknown, without proof in hand. And while all of those are interesting, we are not going to explore religion in this blog. Nor are we going to debate the scientific vs. spiritual mindsets when it comes to faith, because those arguments generally center around religion.
Instead we are going to delve into a broader sense of what Faith is and how we utilize it in a day to day kind of way. And then we are going to explore the impact Faith has on Empaths.
