"God respects faith."
What is faith? I know the Bible talks a lot about faith and there are many verses about faith like " faith comes from hearing and hearing the word of God" and many more. Is there a non-clicheic explanation of what faith is? I guess faith can be for both a believer and a non-believer, non-believers have faith in what they believe in is correct? Are hope and faith essentially the same thing, because technically you hope in something or have faith in something to turn out a certain way?
