What is faith? Here is my definition:


Faith is a belief in something without clear evidence


I believe that faith is a useful concept. Faith helps people cope with life and live optimistically. Sometimes life can be uncertain and scary, and faith allows a person to maintain confidence that everything will be okay. Faith does not require clear evidence but instead it relies on intuition and a feeling. Faith can be applied to religions, achieving goals and just going through life.
