Re: The Difference Between Faith and Knowledge
Without getting into epistemology and other exciting philosophical discussions, it's easy enough to draw a generalized definition of knowledge as "justified true belief." I've always liked that definition because it tends to establish the idea of "knowledge" as something certain, as opposed to uncertain (see: ontology), and purposeful as opposed to accidental (see: Socrates and the slave boy).
Faith, then, is a belief. It can be justified, it can be unjustified--faith can be blind or it can be aware. But faith, in itself, is simply belief. It is a component of knowledge rather than the other way around--if one *knew* something with certitude, one wouldn't need to simply believe because one would also know that the belief was justified and true.
