Faith is a word that occasionally confuses me. As a kid, “you need to have Faith” was a substitute for “trust me” and being a kid who was skeptical of the intentions of anybody who said “trust me” (words of a used care salesman or neighborhood bully), I always looked at who was telling me to ” have Faith” Also an adults nicer substitute for “shush. I don’t know. Go away now” As an adult it’s gained more meanings. A substitute for certainty. Now in all that is a better meaning but it’s rarely been the intentions. “Be still and know” For existence I understand Faith. For other uses, I watch.
