Faith is believing in what we can't see, not believing what everyone tells you, that's gullibility.
For example, can we see the air we breathe? How do we know it's there? If I were to go and say that air didn't exist, I would be thought of as a complete and total idiot. We can't see it, but we know it's there by the effects that we allow it to have over us, because it allows us to breathe and keep us alive. Oh, and wind, but that's not the point. The same idea applies to true Christians and God. They can't see God, but they can feel His presence at times and get overwhelmed physically or emotionally.
