Faith vs. Belief
Belief – to accept as truth, a construct that cannot be verified with empirical evidence.
Faith – to accept as true a construct based on past experience, and supported by empirical evidence.
If a stranger were to ask me to borrow my car, and promise to return it in a week, I can choose to “believe” that he will keep his word and return the car as promised. That is a “belief,” because there is no history of the stranger keeping his word, or empirical evidence because he has not, yet, returned the car as promised.
Suppose I lend him the car, and he returned it, in good order, as promised.
Now suppose, a year later, the guy asked to borrow the car again. I can now be confident that he will keep his word, because my “faith” in him is based in past experience and backed by empirical evidence.
I have great faith in the God of Abraham; because, precisely as prophesied (promised) He destroyed the satanic gods who ruled the ancient world, and the meek (humans) inherited their place as the preeminent being of the modern world.
My Faith is based in past experience, and supported by empirical evidence that can be found in the libraries and archeological ruins of the ancient world on every continent of the globe.
And you shall Know the Truth, and the Truth will Set You Free. Joh. 8:32.
Truth does not require “belief.” A Truth is known, because it can be verified with empirical evidence. You now know the Truth.
Study the Armageddon Prophecies of the Bible as history,
and have Great Faith in the God of Abraham.
Belief: A concept that cannot be corroborated with empirical evidence. Do Not “Believe,” Verify.
