Rayww,

> I know faith is not an emotion or a passion,

<<< How do you get faith? You emote emotions, don't you? You emote passions don't you? I'm not trying to use trickiness to trap you, Rayww. I want to settle your mind that its OK to have faith in yourself, and everyone around you. God says to have faith in him, implying you will know what that feels like since you already have faith in yourself and your abilities. It's OK to have faith in simple stuff. I see it as aiding in overcoming any doubts normal people might have about God. They get to know the territory. If our only faith is only available via induction, the faith is never ours. It is faith overlayed by someone else thus not ours. Isn't that dangerous to only muster up a quantity of faith in God that really is being induced into us for whatever reason? Doesn't match up with the teachings in the Bible. Your belief in God must belong to you, not someone who is doing the thinking for you! Otherwise no entrance into His kingdom....!
