Here Charitable Individualism is the key!… nothing less.

FAITH!


FAITH according to me is the SELF ADMINISTERED  ANTI-ANXIETY SERUM against OPACITY OF THE FUTURE or PRESENT or PAST.

Now,  Paul of Tarsus says FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR AND THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.

There was a time, when my father made me learn by rote the above mentioned verse. But there comes a time in everyone’s life, when the fundamentals taken for granted would have to be consciously reviewed. At the time of such review, one could either accept the given statements or beliefs as a CREED and unquestioningly accept the definition and proceed or alternatively, review the same based on REASON and EMOTIONAL IMPACT on humans. But for the daring and the courageous, mere acceptance by many need not be the basis of the TRUTH of its contents, so a REASONED review becomes the course.

Hence, when my turn came for review came, i found that FAITH, according to Paul  hinged on “THINGS HOPED FOR” and “EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN”. Which means, FAITH relates to the future and the past, leaving out  the PRESENT PURPOSE of such FAITH.

And i should say in all humility, that my definition iterates on the present palliative nature of FAITH without closing down the options for future review, when new evidence emerges contrary to our expectations of our future or beliefs about our  past.

FAITH disappears when we accept our past, as is known or made known at present; or WHATEVER happens in the future.
