Rayww,

> Would belief in Jesus Christ be defined by you as faith as a religion? This is my definition of faith as a religion, quoted from another's words:

<<< Thank you so much for listening... I have a small concern. When you overlap the function of two tools of any kind, you impair their unique and separate functions. Mixing faith and belief and religion is asking for trouble. Each has its own highest purpose.

1. Beliefs can be complete information based only on testimony.
2. Faith is belief in information based on intuition that the complete picture will manifest consistently from the partial picture being observed.
3. Religion is the imperative for mankind to have faith and believe.
4. Religion is obligatory in practice and nature.
5. Faith is voluntary.
6. Belief is optional as well as practical, guided by experienced sense of value. Beliefs can be updated, replaced, and discarded to accommodate situational nessecities.

Of these three, I only hold religion in contempt, and only part of the time at best. Mankind cannot be trusted with worship of an absolute being and calling it faith or belief. Mankind is so corrupted that he must worship as a religion, as an imperative.

These are lifelong observations I hold as truth and are not intended to irritate anyone elses observations and sensibilities.
