"correct faith" refers to a religion or a belief when used this way. It's kind of hard when you enter a site like this, and notice it is about faith, and faith is something very big in your life already. If you have spent your life trying to figure it out, and the more you find out about it the more you realize there is to learn, your view of faith becomes a little tunnelled. Faith is not a shallow subject. It could be discussed in depth continuously and we still wouldn't get to the root of it. It becomes more a question of faith in what than faith as a belief or religion. Some faith(s) might be termed shallow, depending on what or who it is you are having faith in. But if it was (say) by faith that the universe was created, well, that goes deep.

How can we discuss faith if we can't even define it, and how can it be defined without discussing? So this forum may be labelled "faith" but it doesn't mean faith as I understand it, in fact I have never quite figured out what the forum's definition of faith is.

What is yours?

Faith is not to be shunned, it's to be fully embraced. How's that? It's to become a part of you, inseparably connected. It can define one's character because it is related to hope and charity, which is the ability to love others and to be loved. Faith is like one of those things that grows inside you with tenacles reaching into, twining, tangling, tieing all together, only it is very good.

Faith is a bit of an abstract, yet is also very real.
