Faith

A few weeks ago, I was listening to Richard Simcott’s polyglot project podcast, which you can find here:

In the interview, he picks up on 2 words, faith and justice.

Recently, I was also listening to Radio Fourvière, here in Lyon and they were speaking about a lady called Françoise Dolto:

I’d like to pick up on this word faith.

What can it mean ? I believe this question cuts right to the heart of human existence.

What kind of faith can we have ?:

– Muslim faith

– Christian faith

– Jewish faith

– faith in science

– faith in logic

– faith in someone else

to name but a few.

I mean, everybody’s faith is different. But everybody has it, whether they think so or not.

It’s largely linked to belief, but it differs from belief in the fact that you trust in it and act on it. If you have faith in something, you will act accordingly.  I don’t think it’s possible to escape it. If I have faith in someone else, I will trust them, and actions will follow.

O.K., I think that’s about all for now.

  1. Perhaps this says it better:

  2. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you should write more about
    this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people don’t speak about such topics.
    To the next! Cheers!!
