Article 9 - Faith
Faith is a fictional term meaning loyalty to a Person based on promise or duty. Therefore, in its earliest meaning Faith is “duty of fulfilling one’s trust in God”. Faith is a solemn obligation to a promise, which is why the loss of faith is considered by many religions as a willful breach of trust and contract.
Faith is not the same meaning as belief. Belief is a fictional term originally equivalent in meaning “Trust in God” whereas Faith in its original fictional sense means “duty of fulfilling one’s trust in God”. Belief is therefore trust in the “Divine” that something is true, whereas Faith is an obligation to believe something is true.
Belief is not the same meaning as Knosis or “true knowledge”. Belief is based on trust of a higher deity, while Knosis or true knowledge is based on trust borne from Proof, Reason or Logic. In order to strengthen certain fictional models of Reality based on Faith, the definition of Knosis has been abrograted and the definition of Belief deliberately misconstrued.
