Question for believers.

How do these two words differ to you?

Both words are extremely different, but at the same time coincide with one another. Faith is to believe in something that you cannot see with the human eye. Religion utilizes it to strengthen it. At times some religions misuse faith as well. Faith on its own is powerful. Personally, I am slowly growing tired of Religion as it is very flawed, as we all are. To me faith is the gateway to my relationship with God. Faith is far more important than religion.

i know that the greatest explanation describe both of them.

religion is something you are taught by a book and what people tell you about god.

faith is something that god teach you, weather or not you understand or you believe it.

Faith is belief in something without proof

Religion is a construct by humans built around faith.

Faith is in the heart/mind.

Religion is in a book.

I prefer spirituality to either of the other.

Religion spells out the rules and regulations of faith. It tells you how to pray, how to dress, and it tells you how to interact with others. It sets down the ground rules for for those who believe and those who do not. The flavor of religion is also dictated what group you belong to in the faith. Hence we have divisions of believers.

Faith is just what ever flavor of God you find the most palatable.

I tend to agree with @shinobinoz about spirituality. I think spirituality lets you answer the hard existential questions about why we are here and the such.

Faith is a kind belief that is not based on proof

Religion is a particular system of faith

Spirituality is concerned with soul (i.e.,a non-physical spirit) as opposed to the physical.

<<know the one, dwell in the other>> Lao Tzu



proof is an argument establishing a truth (i.e., a fact)

Faith does not entail reasoning.

Fact entails reasoning.

I look the two words, " faith and religion ", it seem that both words are like taboo to people.

you have travel lightly on these two words in conversations, even on the forum. members are careful, like me to because what to said on the forum. like god will get me, if I will be strike down by god. ( twilite, get my umbrella, it is rain heavy in this post. twilite, watch for the lighting that striking all over the place in this post now. )

I don't should be afraid of these two words, or use the two words, be better than anyone else. like your religion or your faith can be superior than mine. ( yes, twilite, someday, everybody will think of us as gods, we are gods. ) these two words should be personal to you.

some people are very sensitive two words, most people as almost worship these two words. if you said something wrong. these kind of people can get hostile, and get angry with you.

I think two words, you always tread likely, when use them. for your sake! remember always, twilte and I are gods!!

Faith has heart. Religion is rout, Faith has soul, religion is paced, faith has spirit. Religion has miles.

Faith is hopeful, religion feels old.

Faith is positive, religion is subjective.

Faith feels closer to nature, religion seems tired and old.......

Religion f***ing sucks d***.... sorry... couldn't help myself, the objective meter when out the window.......

I don't think I've ever heard it put quite that succinctly but I can't say I disagree.
