> It takes faith to pay tithing. It takes faith to live a chaste life. It takes faith to obey the health code. It takes faith to live the ten commandments. It takes faith to believe in the Bible and other scripture. It takes faith to believe in God, and Jesus Christ.

I agree.

>Why are we here to live by faith? The answer is found within the question itself.

Although there is also the question 'why are we here?' which does not contain the answer within the question.

You have faith that we are here to serve god (or to have faith in god). I have faith that we are free to create our own meanings and pupose and choose our own path. We both have faith, just in different things.

>My logic is not meant to offend. Thankyou for encouraging such a deep discussion on faith. It is good to stretch one's thought once in awhile.

Your logic causes no offence, I think that such discussions are useful too. I have the utmost respect for your faith. I do not think that one needs to believe in god or the supernatural in order to have faith, however, as I have much faith in many things though little faith in religious propositions. Faith is extremely important, though, and it is something that cannot be replaced by knowledge (as there isn't the right kind of a-priori or a-posteriori evidence for knowledge).

Faith is a nice antidote for my scepticism and pessimism. It is good to be reminded of that.
